On Tuesday, September 05 2023, at 7 PM eastern, G.A. Grisenthwaite launches his toasty collection of short fiction, Tales for Late Night Bonfires, at the Biblioasis Bookshop on Wyandotte Street in Windsor!
Of the collection, Carol Rose GoldenEagle has said, ” I felt like I was holding a mug of tea in one hand, and enjoying a fish fry with the other – while waiting for his words to paint a vibrant canvas of characters.” Susan Holbrook has said, “Grisenthwaite is a master storyteller, with a voice capable of roasting us and all the other ‘two-leggeds’ while keeping us at the bonfire, hungry for more.”
This is not an event to miss: Grisenthwaite is an electric voice in literature.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
These are stories that are a little bit larger than life, or maybe they really happened. Tales that could be told ’round the campfire, each one-upping the next. Tales about a car that drives herself, ever loyal to her owner. Tales about an impossible moose hunt. Tales about the Real Santa(TM) mashed up with the book of Genesis, alongside SPAM stew and bedroom sets from IKEA.
G.A. Grisenthwaite’s writing is electric and inimitable, blending meticulous literary style with oral storytelling and coming away with a voice that is entirely his own. Tales for Late Night Bonfires is truly one of a kind, and not to be missed.
