Brian Doyle

August 27, 2013
Brian Doyle is the editor of Portland Magazine at the University of Portland, in Oregon. He is the author, he thinks (some of them are small and quick and hard to see in the underbrush), of 13 books of essays, poems, nonfiction, and fiction, notably the sprawling Oregon novel Mink River. Among the peculiar honors which have come his way and confused him utterly is the Award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, which still makes him laugh, although he got a free trip to New York City out of that, with a terrific dinner in a great jazz club, that was fun. His greatest accomplishment is that a small riveting woman said yeah (not yes) when he proposed marriage, that the Coherent Mercy then sent them three children from the sea of the stars, and that he made an all-star team in a really tough league in Boston, guys drove to the basket in that league, they lost fingers, man. See him after class for details.
