Hi, my name is Michael. I live in the American Midwest. I was born in West Africa. This is me, from like twenty years ago. I graduated from Grinnell College with a BA in French Literature. I am a Sagittarius. I used to make music a whole lot. Nowadays, mostly, I write books & sometimes plays. I occasionally write film reviews on Facebook. I also write book reviews on HTMLGIANT.
I wrote Mastodon Farm and Arafat Mountain and Kanley Stubrick. I also wrote the play, The Mystery of the Seventeen Pilot Fish.
My book about the Zodiac Killer, Lonely Men Club is coming out April 2018 via Inside the Castle.​ I also have a political pamphlet, The Colour Purple, releasing via Mount Analogue, June 2018.​ I wrote a detective mystery occult fantasy thriller, Where the Sky Meets the Ocean and the Air Tastes Like Metal and the Birds Don't Make a Sound, with the poet Dan Hoy. We're not sure when that's coming out. I'm also working on a comic book, Lief Itslef, with the artist Tor Brandt. That'll be out when we're done.
Feel free to contact me via Twitter or email. You can listen to my music on Soundcloud or Bandcamp. I'm also on Goodreads. Instagram too, I guess.
Here is a list of ten films I think are really good. And then ten books I also think are really good.
