Have you ever been in a van full of girls? All the girls are alive and they're happy. You're all heading off to do something whimsical and flirty and maybe a little bit drunk. You're going to see a Beach Boys tribute band. You're going to the casino to bet it all on red. You're going to a sťance that you just know is going to end in skinny-dipping. Something like that. A Van Full of Girls is a collection of short, dizzy, funny things. It's zippy and unpredictable, like a mongoose, but it's dead sexy. You will want to take Polaroids of each precious, little missive contained within and then tape each one to your fridge. You will want to give this book to somebody you need to love you.
About the Author:
Michael Murray currently lives and works in Toronto with his wife, son, and dog. He has an extensive, if flawed, wardrobe and is the coach of a floor hockey team called the Jesus Cobras. He won the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest and pines for the Montreal Expos. He works as a creative writer, commentator, blogger, and "journalist," and as he is modest, he feels awkward talking about his genius, which he recently discovered does not translate into IQ tests. He has written for The Globe and Mail, the National Post, Hazlitt magazine, CBC Radio, the Ottawa Citizen, The Toast, as well as scores of other prestigious publications that pay extraordinary amounts of money and fly him around in helicopters. Murray has a degree from a university, skipped grade three, and is currently at work on his second book, People Say I Remind Them of Don Draper.
