Steve Almond does a lot of stuff. He’s the author of nine books of fiction and nonfiction, including the New York Times bestsellers Candyfreak and Against Football. His new book, Bad Stories, is a literary investigation of what the hell just happened to our country. He wrote it to keep from going crazy. He hosts the New York Times “Dear Sugars” podcast with his pal Cheryl Strayed. His short stories have been anthologized widely, in the Best American Short Stories, The Pushcart Prize, Best American Erotica, and Best American Mysteries series. He also publishes crazy, DIY books. He’ll come to your town if you ask.
