Barry Graham


Scottish writer, reporter and Zen monk based in Portland, Oregon. Author of more than a dozen books, including THE BOOK OF MAN (an American Library Association best book of the year), THE WRONG THING (a finalist for the SPINETINGLER MAGAZINE best novel of the year in the Legend category), WHEN IT ALL COMES DOWN TO DUST (a MYSTERY PEOPLE best book of the year) and KILL YOUR SELF: LIFE AFTER EGO, an Amazon Kindle bestseller in the Zen category. Three novels and a collection of stories translated into French. Described by PREMIERE as "a white trash Buddhist monk" with "an uncompromising vision, but also full of tenderness and compassion, that makes him one of the most touching and interesting authors of his generation."

Reportage and commentary have appeared in magazines and newspapers internationally, including HARPER'S and FLAUNT. Currently a columnist at THE BIG CLICK.

Witnessed two executions in Arizona, invited each time by the prisoner, an experience described in WHY I WATCH PEOPLE DIE.
