I first became aware of Charles Gramlich through James Reasoner's Rough Edges blog. Back around 2008 every time I would go to leave a comment on Mr. Reasoner's blog, there was that Gramlich guy ahead of me. One day I clicked over to his Razored Zen and became an instant fan. His posts on family life with his wife Lana, grading school papers, dreams, and everything else in between had me hooked on a very interesting life lived to the fullest. And then there is his writing. I told Charles when I was in the hospital for my daughter's birth it was his BITTER STEEL that helped pass the time waiting and relax my mind.
So I'm glad to say that he has a new book out called DAYS OF BEER: A MEMOIR OF A BEER DRINKIN' MAN that delves into his growing up. Yeah, he's talking about beer but that is a starting point for all kinds of stories about hanging out with his family, friends etc. And it had me chuckling aloud many times.
Buy DAYS OF BEER on Amazon. I'm certain you will enjoy it.
