PRAISE FOR BRIAN ALAN ELLIS

“It won’t be long until everybody is bubbling in their bubble about Brian Alan Ellis. They’ll be mad that he took the shortcut and didn’t bubble in their bubble. And instead of bubbling in their bubble, he put in a decade of hard work in the underground, making no attempt at networking, making no moves towards fame, cleaning up the vomit from the toilet bowl from the food he had served the drunk people, falling in the swamp delirious on cocaine, typing in a sweltering room, his cat staring at him, wrestling on the TV, and the bubble over there bubbling and drinking cocktails together and complaining about how their students just don’t get it, how the dean just doesn’t get it, how a person should be canceled for writing about this or that at-the-moment-off-limits thing. Well, get this: Brian Alan Ellis is one of the best living writers in America, and he has a pulse, and over by the soups my phone rang and I answered it and the man said, ‘Wuuuuuuzzzz up, Bud!’”—BUD SMITH, author of Teenager
