    First exposed to “Johnny” and his work thorough the literary magazine KNOCK. With WEST OF HERE, it’s clear that Evison may be one of the go-to literary figures not only for the Pacific Northwest, but of our generation. That’s a big prediction, but Evison has the energy and creativity and personality to fulfill it. The fact that he’s ever so approachable, personable and a rabid cheerleader for emerging writers is just the fedora on top of this incredible sundae of talent.

    I was first taken in by Evison’s remarkable storytelling skills with his debut novel, All About Lulu, and though I haven’t yet read West of Here, I am anxious to do so.

    I met Jonathan at the Northwest Book Fair in Kirkland last summer, then atain at a Seattle7Writers event last October and again at Park Place books in Kirkland after that. He was approachable, generous with his time and skill and hiding a sense of humor I wish I had more exposure to. He has given me advice and the benefit of his experience, good, bad and sometimes ugly. I just really like and admire him and would love to have that box.

    Besides … Valentine’s Day is my birthday and that set would make a lovely gift, don’t you think??

    I love that Jonathon is finally getting the recognition he greatly deserves! It’s nice to know that even someone from a small town can really make a name for themselves. Congratulations on your award and keep the books coming.
