First the reviews: "Poignant and wise," Los Angeles Times.
" A collection that is so stunning...that I could not help but move on to the next story." Entertainment weekly
"Original and articulate." Midwest Book Review
These stellar reviews are for Christopher Meek's The Middle-Aged Man & the Sea and Other Stories, and guess what--the book was self-published. Now Meeks has a new book out The Brightest Moon of the Century ( started in my UCLA advanced novel writing class four years ago) which follows Edward, a Minnesotan, from age 14 to 45, and it is already is racking up the raves.
