$1,888

At the end of August 2011, I got arrested for drunk driving. It was the logical end of a post-graduation summer. I lost a lot of money and moved back in with my parents in St. Louis, Missouri. I got a job at a hotel and quit drinking. 

I took a scant ~30 page narrative of mine that was relatively aimless and worked to turn it into a book. I wrote it to get better. I think it is good enough for people to read it.

The book primarily takes place over a four year stretch focusing on a loose cabal of young adult friends that are bad for each other. A grown man managing a sperm bank ejaculates everywhere. A suicide survivor gets obsessed with narratives. A woman enjoys sitting down in the shower. A punk rock band tries to upstage a goat.

My name is Alex Branson and this is the first book that I have written. My work has been put up on some online literary journals. You can find those links at www.bransonbransonbranson.tumblr.com. You can also follow my twitter page at www.twitter.com/bransonbranson. That one is mostly jokes.

Once (if) it gets funded, I will email contact you guys and ask for your physical and email addresses.

Thanks for reading this. email me at bransonat (at) gmail dot com for questions!

Special shout out to my friend Joel Schafer for helping me make sure that the book was closer to the book I wanted it to be.
