TJ Bainz

 

Sometimes touching, sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, TJ Bainz knits together oddball tales that take place not so far from your own doorstep.

 

His stories run the gauntlet from a beleaguered ex-rock star in ‘Wrecking Ball,’ to a misused – or should that be abused? – middle-aged sports reporter (‘Fire in Autumn’) all the way to more sobering tales such as ‘Father’s Watching’ or ‘When the Prime Minister Sneezes.’
