Meet author Brian Daniels and hear excerpts from his new book “It Seemed Like A Compliment to Me.” Enjoy a few laughs, and maybe even a few songs.
About the author:
Brian Daniels is an avid outdoorsman, a newspaper columnist, novelist, musician, and songwriter. Many of his songs, including four title tracks, have been recorded by eight different artists. His first novel, Luke’s Dream, was released in January, 2011. He has, for several years, written a humorous column, Thoughts of an Average Joe by Joe Wright (Thoughts of an Average Brian just doesn’t have the same ring), which is featured in newspapers throughout northern New England. Since 1984, he has practiced optometry in Brunswick, Maine, where he lives with his wife, Laurene.
About the book:
Average Joe Wright is back! Joe, still an average middle-aged, thick-around-the-middle man living in Smalltown USA is also still hopelessly clinging to the twentieth century. The modern world just confuses and frustrates him, prompting him to offer his hilarious takes and wry observations on just what is wrong with it all. In this second book, Joe, the alter ego of author Brian Daniels, offers more thoughts about the many issues that interest, confuse, or irritate him, including: winter driving, festival season, barbershops, GPS navigation and complicated gadgets. Maybe you’ll agree with some of his thoughts. If not, he’ll be quick to tell you . . . well . . . you are just wrong.
