After two full-length fiction collections that mixed his irreverent treatment of form and gritty real-life candor, Jamie Iredell delivers an assured and honest collection of personal essays. “I Was a Fat Drunk Catholic School Insomniac” reveals a writer who takes on his (literal) highs and (existential) lows with the unembellished voice of an anthropologist. Erudite, funny, and fearless, Iredell dives into subjects, such as drugs, alcoholism, body image, racism, feminism, and religion, shining a light on some of the darkest moments of life. These personal essays are confessional, and ultimately full of hope. A book sale and signing will follow.
