coffee journal

Pretty pictures are pretty.

That’s not why I’m here.

My job is to treat everything as my own,

be it my book, or yours.

Focus

Narrative nonfiction books on subrosa, wayward, and misunderstood topics; cookbooks with a heartbeat.

Long-form reporting, particularly (old-school) artisan producers, arts & crafts types, farmers/ranchers/those who dig in (not up) dirt, old-time musicians, and other fascinating folks. (Read: people, not restaurant or arts criticism.)

Anything relating to sudden, unprovoked, and excessively energetic activity in the brain (excepting most celebrity sightings).
