About this title


Bedtime Stories is a film lover's dream read. Jake Spinner shows movies and collects stories. Jake is the cinematic wanderer whose travels and life story are told in Bedtime Stories. Jake's life is filled with coffee, movies, buffalo, donuts, tuxedos, trucks, cedar chests, polar bears, the fiery hooch of the steppes, cold weather horses, kittens, Parisian circuses, urban rodeo, pizza, Hell's Angels, Buddhists, gunslingers, Ziegfeld follies strippers, projection bulbs, cowboy artists, clarinets, opera houses, guitar shops, floods, tightrope walkers, hot digs, poets, hobos, philosopher mechanics, woodstoves, amorous weightlifters, Raquel Welch doubles, abandoned towns, incendiary acts of malfeasance, Ruby Sauce, pakoras, right wing vigilantes, post offices, and the occasional flood of biblical proportions. There's even a romance or two along the way, proving that good things happen when your life is freed from the restrictions of gravity and time. Bedtime Stories gives adults the same sense of wonder that children have when read to before going to sleep. It is a delightful blend of A.A. Milne's, Winnie the Pooh, and Miguel de Cervante's, Don Quixote. Simply a joy to take to bed each night.

About the Author:

Joseph Emil Blum has published numerous poems, plays, essays and columns. He was born in Ohio and raised in New York. His first paid job was removing ice from a Cadillac at the age of seven. Abandoning that promising career he then went on to the care of exotic animals, life-guarding, home insulating, construction, carpentry, fisheries biology, teacher of the living and the dying, and lavender farming. At the age of nineteen he moved to the Pacific Northwest and now lives in rural Oregon with his wife Nancy and daughter Ruby. He spends winters alternately tormented and pleased by the thundering sounds of amorous chorus frogs, and summers alternately tormented and pleased by slowly pitched softballs. He is very proud to have juggled fish in the Bering Sea while working aboard the world's largest fishing vessel, the Sulak: an act he believes may have facilitated the end of the Cold War, and is equally proud to have sung in a Soviet fisherman's dance band aboard the same vessel: an act that, no doubt, prolonged it. Bedtime Stories is his first novel.
