In A Burning of Ducks and Other Stories, the latest collection of short fiction by the author of the Gator and the Holy Ghost and other Stories of a Slightly Reconstructed South, James L.

Author Biography

James Fortuna, Jr., a seventy-one-year-old still fleet enough of foot to avoid becoming a passenger on "time's winged chariot" or a more than occasional landing pad for flies, currently teaches English and Holocaust Studies at a community college filled with enough characters (himself included) to keep a satirist in business for at least ten more years. He has worked at various other jobs and has had various other experiences in various places over the course of a lifetime that incudes being thrown out of a pretty decent university's creative writing program, becoming homeless after a civil rights disagreement with an unnamed college in the Shallow (as opposed to the Deep) South, being hugged by Lyndon B. Johnson, becoming tangled in the Alabama state flag in Governor George Wallace's office, and trying to establish a homeless shelter on a not very welcoming New Age commune. He also plays at the five-string banjo and is living in nearly perfect peace with a wife who approaches sainthood by the simple fact of putting up with more nonsense than any human being should ever be subjected to. And he apparently is reckless enough to end a sentence now and then with a preposition.
