Fresh Ink: Spotlight on Debut Books of All Kinds (And This One Is From A Local Author!)

An eclectic collection, Joyride for Sale presents a compilation of short pieces from author Dennis Knight. Some of the anecdotes are drawn from his experiences gathered during seventy years of living, while others are fictional exercises classified as fun and funny, and still other offer simple observations of the world.

Knight tells stories about his adult life and of growing up in Wyoming, recalling how he devoured coconuts to solve an engineering dilemma in his short career as a male belly dancer; hoe he dueled a mean, green-eyed girl at bumper cars; and how he he created a whole new set of curse words. Joyride for Sale presents lively conversations about bands marching in tutus, jazz music, honeybees and punching cows.

Knight offers a collection of down-to earth, wry, evocative and optimistic narratives to help you ponder the meaning of life, celebrate the mysteries of space, and fall in love at least once a week.

"The key message of my book is that true riches lie in the ability to see life from an optimistic perspective.  Life can be both fun and funny."
