About Me

My stories and essays have appeared in Narrative, Esquire, Glimmer Train Stories, The Greensboro Review, and The Missouri Review. I also review books for The Barnes and Noble Review, January Magazine, and The Los Angeles Review of Books. I'm currently at work on a novel ("Fobbit") based in part on my experiences while deployed to Iraq with the U.S. Army. You can follow my progress at my blog, The Quivering Pen (www.davidabramsbooks.blogspot.com), plus read news and reviews from all around the literary landscape.

Why do you write?

To quote George Thorogood in "Boogie Chillun'": "It's in him, it's gotta come out."

Words are cocaine.
