Shoutout to Daniel Perry

Thanks, Underbridge Press–happy to be part of Joypuke III this fall!

The Underbridge Press

We recently received word here at Underbridge that Daniel Perry, one of the fantastic writers featured in the upcoming Joypuke III, will be publishing a collection of his work May! Here’s what he has to say about it:

“A nomadic young bartender tries to quit smoking. A crotchety writing teacher stands on the brink of losing everything he loves. A family wrestles with the legacy of its war hero patriarch. An eight-year-old boy challenges his mother to start picking up the pieces of their broken home. In more than 20 vignettes, flashes and stories, many of them previously published in SubTerrain, Riddle Fence, Little Fiction and abroad, Hamburger takes readers to Venice, Cleveland, Nicaragua, Lithuania and several Canadian locales on its quest to explore the emotional struggles and hard-won illuminations of life on the through-side of the grinder.”

HamburgerSounds riveting. You can find out more about Daniel Perry and his writing at his website ( or skip straight to a pre-order from Thistledown Press (
