The Author

Michael Kindt

I am a writer living in South Dakota. I have written my whole life, but only seriously these last few years. Giving up conventional notions of career and success, I changed my life and plunged full-time into the world of the starving artist. It was the best decision I’ve ever made. I have had several stories, articles, and poems published, and am currently writing a weekly column for Cagle Cartoons & Commentary. Be forewarned, it is very liberal and very sarcastic.

I am also the author of the infamous “Mechanically Separated Chicken” article, which made the rounds awhile back and was widely misunderstood. I’m also author of “Shitty Tattoo,”  a short work of comedy that also made the rounds and which nobody got but me.

I consider myself a satirist and am interested in the dark side of everything. I am not a prescriptivist about anything, least of all writing. My work has been compared to Elmore Leonard, Augusten Burroughs, and David Sedaris, but I don’t know what that means since I have never read any of them. It has also been called “uniquely fucked up” and I know exactly what that means. You will, too.

    Nice work. I love your style; everything from the disgusting to the poignant to the heart-wrenching becomes a platform for sarcasm and tongue-in-cheek jokes, sometimes nonsense, but too often unsettlingly right on the money.
    I look forward to buying your book in the near future; a sharp mind, a biting tongue and a lot of beer and dedication seem to have powered a very good writer who can be cliche while always sounding fresh and unique.
    Sorry for all the flattery, I just couldn’t leave your page without leaving a hint of my admiration, one writer to another.
    God bless.

    Ok yes so anyway enjoyed the short story. You style does remind me a bit of David Sedaris, and that’s a very good thing.
