Announcing THE VOICEOVER ARTIST by Dave Reidy

By Naomi Huffman

Dave Reidy Curbside SplendorCurbside Splendor is thrilled to announce that we'll be publishing Dave Reidy's novel THE VOICEOVER ARTIST in the fall of 2015.

Reidy's writing has appeared in numerous journals, most notably Granta and The Morning News. His short story "The Regular" was selected as the winner of the Emerging Writers Network Short Fiction Contest. His first book, a collection of stories titled Captive Audience, garnered some pretty impressive praise:

“In Captive Audience, Dave Reidy collects fictional stories of performers on the fringes of the entertainment world and deftly mixes in cameos from real celebrities (from R.E.M. to Abe Vigoda). This heartfelt collection highlights Reidy’s empathy for his characters, and portends a bright future for the author.”—David Gutowski, largeheartedboy
“Captive Audience is wonderful. These stories—understated, honest and always touching—limn the many small perils that await a young man today on his way to settling in the world. This is an immensely rewarding book.”—Scott Turow
