I mentioned writer Michael Kimball back when he did such a great job penning my life story on a postcard.

Michael's most recent novel, Dear Everybody, is getting wonderful reviews. It is a book that is both hilarious and heart-wrenching (frequently simultaneously) and deserves the considerable acclaim it is receiving.

The book is composed of letters of apology (supplemented with diary entries, miscellaneous written fragments, sundry pieces of documentation, etc.) to nearly everyone the protagonist has known during the course of his life. Presenting his character's story in piecemeal fashion, Michael seems to have written a book about life itself, everbody's life, in glaring focus: the good, the bad, and the sad.

The Dear Everybody book tour recently brought Michael to New York City for readings at the Arrow Bar (pictured above; Michael at left with yours truly) last month and this past Sunday evening at KGB Bar on E. 6th Street.

On October 22nd Michael will be back in New York, this time in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn, to read new work at WORD. Don't miss it!

Sounds like a good read. Keep me posted if you ever go to one of these readings. I'd be interested in going.
