Originally from Boston, Mickey J. Corrigan lives and writes and gets into trouble in South Florida, where the men run guns and the women run after them.

The cofounder of Goodreads sent me a message. I was one of 5 Goodreads writer/readers invited to an intimate lunch with Bret Easton Ellis in Miami Beach. I live only a few cities north of Trendy Town, so I jumped at the chance to meet one of my Top Ten influences. I even considered buying a new shirt to wear…Nah.

The luncheon coincided with Art Basel, an international art event that has become M... Read more of this blog post »

This book is hard to read! Why? Because it is a deep and revealing look at a growing subculture America does not want to acknowledge. What happens to middle class folks after they turn a certain age and lose their jobs, retire on meager social securi ...more

Theodore Roethke
“I may look like a beer salesman, but I'm a poet.”
Theodore Roethke

Bret Easton Ellis
“I am gripped by an existential panic.”
Bret Easton Ellis

Tim O'Brien
“A true war story is never moral. It does not instruct, nor encourage virtue, nor suggest models of proper human behavior, nor restrain men from doing the things men have always done. If a story seems moral, do not believe it. If at the end of a war story you feel uplifted, or if you feel that some small bit of rectitude has been salvaged from the larger waste, then you have been made the victim of a very old and terrible lie. There is no rectitude whatsoever. There is no virtue. As a first rule of thumb, therefore, you can tell a true war story by its absolute and uncompromising allegiance to obscenity and evil.”
Tim O'Brien, The Things They Carried
