Our Face Out today is for an intriguing new novel by San Francisco author Josh Mohr (excerpt here). Jonathan Evison calls Mohr the “bard of the underbelly,” and, true to these wastrel-ly ways, he did get kicked out of an event at a recent
bookshow in Portland, though it wasn't his fault (long story). We took a photo of his tattoo, a Charles Baxter quote (from the chapter “Inflection and the Breath of Life” from The Art of Subtext), soon after and found him to be a very nice and gracious guy, particularly in the wake the tattoo-profiling scandal.
We have several advanced copies of Damascus, and we'll mail them to the first few people who comment on this post or the Face Out.
