4-Star Foreword Reviews
‘Brilliant esoteric fiction! A standout! The epilogue will blow reader’s minds and beg a second reading!’
‘Gary is at the height of his literary powers, producing a character and a story that feels viscerally authentic long after the reality-bending conclusion.’
Confined to a Portland, Oregon mental hospital, for denying participation in a YouTube video gone viral, 17-year-old Preston Nesbitt records his thoughts in a journal—hoping to convince his doctor and parents he isn’t delusional.
A savant with a rare form of Asperger’s, Preston rails against society’s wrong, especially ‘The Drug War On Children,’ while accurately evaluating the psychological condition of a pack of misfit peers.
With sparkling language and unique insight, Austin Gary’s satire is intelligent and humorous—Jonathan Swift meets David Sedaris— with a reality-bending conclusion worthy of O. Henry!
This Tuesday, Austin Gary will be at the Theatre Off Jackson in Seattle, WA for AGtV’s The Best Of from their 8 hour series that originally aired on NPR’s KUOW Seattle. Here is a piece from their announcement for the upcoming event.
“Hello, awesome friends. We are so proud to present our final show of 2012, featuring some of our favorite stories from the last 11 years of AGTV. It’s a really special night of storytelling. This year, storytellers Dan Peterson, Gary Heyde (Austin Gary), Suzy Summit Cyr, Melanie McFarland, Paul Currington, and Nathan Friend take the stage to re-tell their remarkable stories – everything from a night in a creepy European castle to auto theft to a stunning day spent in the shoes of a beloved writer.
