Our reading this month comes from the charming and outrageous Jamie Brickhouse, longtime friend and former board chair of The Secret City. Jamie’s recent memoir, Dangerous When Wet, was published by St. Martin’s Press and he’s been traveling the country making appearances promoting the book. I’m delighted he’s going to share a bit of the magic with us on Sunday, May 31st for MEMORY.
Here’s his bio:
Jamie Brickhouse is the author of Dangerous When Wet (St. Martin’s Press), a darkly comic memoir about booze, sex, and his mother Mama Jean. Mary Karr calls it “blisteringly funny;” Paul Rudnick says it’s “intoxicating;” and Wally Lamb declares:
“Move over Augusten Burroughs. You’ve got company.” The book has been lauded by Vanity Fair, the Washington Post, Out, and Entertainment Weekly (“glamorously tragic and howlingly funny” A-). It was also named a Best Book of May 2015 by Amazon. Brickhouse has been published in the New York Times, the International Herald Tribune, Lambda Literary Review, Publishers Weekly, and is a guest blogger for the Huffington Post. He is at work on a second book, a memoir about his relationship with his father Earl. You can visit him at www.jamiebrickhouse.com, on Facebook, or follow on Twitter @jamiebrickhouse.
