Andrew Farkas, "The Great Indoorsman"

Celebrate the release of Andrew Farkas' new essay collection The Great Indoorman: Essays at The Book Cellar!

About The Book: 

Many authors have traveled and explored the out-of-doors, both in life and then in their books, proving themselves stalwart, audacious, and even heroic;  Andrew Farkas is not among them. He is brave enough to admit that the outdoors isn’t for him. Instead, in these essays, Farkas reports on his bold explorations of a very different territory: the in-of-doors, the waiting rooms, kitchens, malls, bars,  theaters, roadside motel rooms, and other places that feature temperature control,  protection from rampaging predators, and a higher degree of comfort than can be found outside. 

 Farkas discovers that, just as the mannered and wonderfully (gloriously) artificial indoors influence us greatly, our lives are also controlled much more by fiction  than by anything “real.” So come in out of the weather (it’s always terrible) and join the Great Indoorsman on his adventures, where he makes fun of pretty much everything, most of all himself. 

About The Author 

 Andrew Farkas is an assistant professor of English at Washburn University. He is the author of The Big Red Herring, Sunsphere, and Self-Titled Debut.
