“This book illustrates the struggle to create stability in this kind of life, exposing the magical and transcendent possibilities of living life on the edge without a long-term plan” —Ashley Obscura, author of Ambient Technology
“The Handsome Man is about listening and writing, it’s about the dream of youth, the desire to squeeze every last shimmering drop of life out of the present moment. It’s about the vague and haunting ache that comes with loss and the people who make it bearable. From couches in Rome to frozen rivers in the Canadian countryside, the top of the Berliner Dom, and graveyards in Memphis, Casey takes you on an unforgettable journey through life’s wilderness.” —Sofia Banzhaf, author of Pony Castle
“This self-deprecating novel exploded my expectations and became the novel from our generation that I’ve been dying to read. Innocence is limited and our grains of hope are sometimes dashed, but Brad Casey has demonstrated that we can all be this Handsome Man. Both running away and towards something possibly better than ourselves.” —Maudlin House
“I admire the emotional openness, tenderness and deeply uncynical tone of The Handsome Man, a novel-in-stories that feels unlike anything else I’ve read recently. Brad Casey’s fiction debut is a gem that celebrates little blips of happiness and small, elusive moments of genuine human connection.” —Guillaume Morissette, author of New Tab and The Original Face
