New York Times Book Review:
"Tis the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature is stirring in John Dufresne's ghoulishly funny crime novel...John Dufresne's is an original talent. His humor is frightfully dark, but it's also quite dazzling - even by the exacting standards of South Florida crime fiction."

John Dufresne is the author of five novels: Louisiana Power & Light, Love Warps the Mind a Little, (both New York Times Notable Books of the Year) Deep in the Shade of Paradise, Requiem, Mass., and No Regrets, Coyote.  He also wrote two short story collections: The Way That Water Enters Stone and Johnny Too Bad, as well as three chapbooks:  Lethe, Cupid, Time and Love; Well Enough Alone; and I Will Eat a Piece of the Roof and You Can Eat the Window. He has two books on writing and creativity: The Lie That Tells a Truth: a Guide to Writing Fiction and Is Life Like This? and A Guide to Writing Your First Novel in Six Months.

Dufresne is also a playwright, award-winning screenplay writer, a 2012-13 Guggenheim Fellow and teaches in the MFA program at Florida International University in Miami.

If you are a a lover of books, come out to John Dufresne's book reading and signing. It promises to be a fascinating and fun evening.
