Book: Awkward Press

Ben Bush


Jeffrey Dinsmore’s novels begin as page-turning genre fiction satires but in their oddness and literary invention quickly veer into something else. As one of his characters remarks, “Digressions will get you everywhere.” Dinsmore’s latest digression is the co-launch of a new literary journal, Awkward, which in its first issue spans the gamut of human experience: from life-changing concussions to the embarassment of your mother dying in front of your prom date. -Ben Bush
