Curtis, Jeff, 1962—

The Rhythm of the Game: a novel/by Jeff Curtis.


“I long to possess beauty, to acquire it, collect it, to hold it in my hands.” – Delose Conner, Very Basic Art Lessons

I love beautiful things. I yearn to see beauty; I yearn to hear beauty; I yearn to hold beauty. I have attempted to capture beauty here. Thanks for your help, Delose. If indeed I have captured something beautiful, it wouldn’t have happened without you.

I love to dream. Lafe Conner inspired me with this quote about dreams:

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” – Eleanor Roosevelt.

Thank you, Lafe, for adding clarity to the beauty of my dreams.

I love my wife. Thank you, Kristi, for creating. Thank you for allowing me to see, to hear, and to hold the beautiful Amanda, Tyler, Blake, and Aubree.

I love anyone who loves my children. Thank you, Marcia and Kevin, for loving Amanda, Tyler, Blake, and Aubree. And thanks for asking. I didn’t have the courage to come to you; yet you were willing to come to me and ask. This whole thing would be just another Word document on my hard drive if it weren’t for you.
