About the Author:

Kirk Alex grew up in Chicago. "Found myself in the jungles of Viet Nam at 19. Got through that. Returned to the Windy City and bought a typewriter. Little did I know that it would take years to develop a style, a voice, let alone get anywhere with it. Headed west soon after: L.A., and that madness. This was the early 70s.

"Was a furniture mover, delivered phone books door to door, drove a taxi, was a movie extra, worked in a factory, painted apartments, was shipping clerk at a mail-order porn video company even, sold rebuilt mattresses to Sunset Strip prostitutes and out-of-work Hollywood actor types.

"Bottom line: my olivetti/LETTERA manual typewriter provided the only light at the end of the tunnel. Granted, it may have been a weak light; still, it was the only lifeline available. Without books/writing, I might easily have ended up in a straitjacket in a rubber room somewhere, or dead."
