Pg. 99: Michael Kimball's "Dear Everybody"

The current feature at the Page 99 Test: Michael Kimball's Dear Everybody.

About the book, from the publisher:
Jonathon Bender had something to say to the world, but the world wouldn’t listen. However, he left behind unsent letters addressed to relatives, friends, teachers, classmates, professors, roommates, employers, former girlfriends, his ex-wife, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, the state of Michigan, and a weather satellite, among many others. These form the narrative of a remarkable life.

Dear Everybody maintains a tone of finely judged tension between laughter and tears in an involving and sympathetically written work of fiction.

Michael Kimball's first two novels are The Way the Family Got Away (2000) and How Much of Us There Was.
