Contributor Spotlight at the Hayden's Ferry Review Blog

Review of Sh*t My Dad Says!


My review of Justin Halpern's Sh*t My Dad Says is in print in the new LEO Weekly out of Louisville, KY, and also at their website. A funny, funny book. If you haven't heard by now, you can check out its origins as a Twitter feed as well as the Facebook page and website.
