Wickedly fascinating. A marketing genius who created a 900 line for selecting winners of NFL football games-and used his four-year-old son to make the picks.

The other one said, This way, kid, and Frank Mears followed, swaying. American youth, as a boy you sat on a barrel in front of the general store in Sangamon County, watching the farm-carts coming into town. Dust rose uneasily from between their wheels, and the country dogs lay in the sun.

Bio

Andy Glasser was born and raised in New York City, learning early on from his experience in city schools that diversity should be celebrated. He attended the High School of Music and Art, and from there found his way to the Dance Theatre of Harlem, where he was one of the only white players in their percussion ensemble. He continues to try to stretch his mind today, as he did then, currently living and working in the Bible Belt of the South. His writings reflect his experience, and his search to understand and portray that which makes us all human.

In the day of superficial fiction and business-oriented writing, it is rare to find someone who writes with a true passion for simply WRITING, and bettering himself through that passion. This is what Andy Glasser brings to the table, and that soul is something I, as a reader, am desperately thirsty for, and I doubt I am alone.
Mr. Glasser's work is as much self-exploration as entertainment. There is a sense when reading this collection of short stories and poetry that you aren't just browsing through some short fiction, easy to read in the morning rather than the newspaper (and far more uplifting); You are actually getting to know Andy. He has a very distinct, very contemporary style free from long descriptions and cliched style, he likes to get right to the heart of the matter. I find it refreshing that there actually IS a heart of the matter rather than just some prose praying for a bestseller slot.
So, superlatives aside, why should you buy this book? Because it is different than anything on your shelf, it is undoubtubly the first in a long series of works from a soon-to-be-swimming-in-publishing-offers-and-cash author, and it is something that could actually make you (gasp!) think.
The downside, what makes me toss it four stars rather than five, is that it's short. Oh so short. Just when I was savoring the fine way Andy crafts his work, I find out I get an appetizer rather than a banquet. This is something you can read in a day and, growling in frustration, read again.
But for the price? This is Gold.
In summation? Buy it. Read it. Love it. Tell your friends. And get to know Mr. Andy Glasser.

I was recently complaining to a friend that I was having trouble finding a good book to read, one that could hold my attention through the numerous interruptions (from kids, friends, spouse, in-laws, parents, telemarketers, pets, etc.... you get the idea) that inevitably take place during my very precious "personal" time, and he suggested that I read this book of short stories. I told him that I was not a big fan of short stories. I always found them to be too short for my taste. He told me to give this a try anyway. I did, and was pleasantly surprised. Andy Glasser's short stories and poems are a real treat - a bit like warm chocolate melting in your mouth very slowly. I wanted to, and did, savor every word. The stories are well thought out and beautifully written. My favorite story is "The Breast Man," which is not just funny, it is laugh-out-loud funny. My kids kept asking me why I was laughing so much. I did not want to stop reading to tell them. I hope Andy Glasser turns this jewel into a novel, and quickly too. I found the other stories and poems to be imaginative, touching, funny, poignant, insightful, and filled with unforgettable characters. This is definitely a keeper. I recommend this book very highly as it has something for everyone.

This book is great for both avid readers and those who don't like to read. After reading this book myself, I handed it to my brother (who dislikes reading) and surprisingly enough, he found it an enjoyable read. The short stories and poems are long enough to convey their deep meanings, yet short enough for his attention span.
I, myself couldn't put the book down. The stories transport you into the shoes of the narrator and you are allowed to explore the mind of another person. There is something about Andy Glasser's words that let you relate to the characters in his stories, and feel what they feel. The stories feel so real that after reading each story, I had to take a deep breath and tell myself that it was only fiction (or was it?)
The poems offer an insightful look into the mind of the author and are just as enjoyable as his stories.

Although I enjoyed the whole book, "Another Innocence" was the story that really got me...and one I would choose as my favorite.
I like Andy's style of writing even though I usually don't go in for the "Dark Humour". This book is definitely worth the read and, like me, you may not agree with all of the author's opinions but you will think about (and maybe even rethink) some of your own ideas about love, religion and Hell.
Read it. And then reread it just to make sure you got everything!

This is a great book and I'm not just saying that because the author gave it to me for free ;P Andy Glasser has filled the 63 pages of this book with fascinating stories that will make you think about your own views on life and death and God.
My only disappointment was that it was too short. A terribly easy read, I finished it in one sitting.. and then read it again. I highly recommend it to anyone who has some spare time and an open mind.

the beauty of this book is that it gives the reader an interesting peek into the life of the author. it doesn't matter that you might not know the author. (i didn't.) his characters reflect an intelligent person attempting to uncover humor -- dark, sometimes, but humor nonetheless -- in a world that tends to be slightly less than humorous.

Bulace
it's been so long since i've read fiction so rich and fresh. it's like eating newly picked strawberries with homemade whipped cream. i just can't get enough of this book. i'm addicted to the 'breast man.'

I have always been a fan, and was more than happy to read this book. I am captivated by the way Andy writes, and I am always left wanting more. Aight, I am not the best reviewer, but I know what I like and this is on my top ten list of books that are amazing.
