Gabe Durham, The Complete Genealogy of Everyone, Ever

I recently read, and greatly enjoyed, Gabe Durham's story chapbook The Complete Genealogy of Everyone, Ever. Durham writes in an easy, whimsical and very funny style, with protagonists who are just barely this side of loserdom but still inspire empathy in the reader. I found myself pulling for each one of them, even while fully aware that their lives will all fall just a bit short of the mark. Durham still has a few copies of his self-published chapbook available, so if you're interested in purchasing feel free to contact him at his website. I'm sure you'll be glad you did. I'm looking forward to reading much more of his writing which, based on item #5 in this interview at The Collagist, there should be plenty forthcoming.
