Jamie Iredell’s previous books, Prose. Poems. A Novel and The Book of Freaks, have long been favorites around these parts. Now, he’s returned with an essay collection on Future Tense with the amazing title I Was a Fat Drunk Catholic School Insomniac. On Tuesday, November 5th, we’ll be hosting Iredell, along with John Dermot Woods and Hugh Sheehy, at Book Thug Nation.
Jamie Iredell‘s most recent book is I Was a Fat Drunk Catholic School Insomniac. He is also the author of The Book of Freaks. His writing has appeared in many literary magazines, among them Gigantic, PANK, The Rumpus, and Opium Magazine. He lives in Atlanta.
John Dermot Woods writes stories and draws comics in Brooklyn, NY. His first collection of comics, Activities, is now available from Publishing Genius Press. He is the author of the image-text novels The Complete Collection of People, Places, and Things, and, in collaboration with J. A. Tyler, No One Told Me I Was Going To Disappear. He and Lincoln Michel published their funny comic strip, Animals in Midlife Crises at The Rumpus. (Now they are hard at work on very long story featuring Werner Herzog as a park ranger.) He is a founder of the online arts journal Action, Yes and a professor of English and Creative Writing at SUNY Nassau Community College.
