Brian Doyle is the editor of Portland Magazine at the University of Portland, in Oregon. He is the author of nine books of essays, nonfiction, and "proems," and his work has appeared in The Best American Essays collections of 1998, 1999, 2003, and 2005. In Australia his work appears in Eureka Street and The Age. Oddly enough he barracks for Geelong, does he not have enough tension in his life or what? "Strangers pour their stories into Brian Doyles's attentive ear; with a self-effacing craft, and a reverence for what's holy in the every day, he shapes them into poems of bounding energy and surprising moral depth."- Helen Garner.
