I cannot believe it’s been five years since my last book Civilianized: A Young Veteran’s Memoir came out! I guess it’s time for another! This November 8th I have a new graphic memoir coming out and if you’re not familiar with graphic memoirs they’re this amazing–newish–growing medium that combines graphic novels (illustrated story-telling) with the honesty and self-reflection of memoir.
My new book is titled: Just Another Meat-Eating Dirtbag: A Memoir and here’s what it’s about:
“A rough-and-tumble Iraq War veteran is young and in love, and the last thing on his mind is food and the ethics of eating meat. But when his girlfriend becomes a vegetarian and animal rights activist, suddenly food is all he thinks about.
A true story of how love and vegetarianism can triumph over all else. Love, heartache, and the rest of the ingredients that make a reader laugh, smile, stop-and-think, are all found in this enthralling graphic memoir. Amidst the stories of love and frustration, there are treatises on food, vegetarianism, and the ethics of the animal rights movement (some of it juxtaposed against Michael’s graphic wartime experiences). Told with Michael’s sardonic perspective and the delightful artwork of debut graphic novelist Chai Simone, this is a journey of true love gone temporarily astray.”
Anyway, if you’ve read any of my stuff before I think you’ll definitely enjoy this book, and make sure to pre-order it on amazon or at your local bookstore (pre-orders help with some sort of algorithm for books and stuff, so make sure to buy a copy today!)
