Christopher Cunningham


A strange freak improvising upon an old IBM typewriter, Cunningham prefers leathery Bordeaux wines, mid-sixties Miles Davis and sleeping past noon whenever possible. He's published thirteen books of poetry and prose including Flowers In The Shadow Of The Storm (Sunnyoutside, 2007), A Sound To Drive Away The Coming Darkness (Propaganda Press, 2008) and Sunlight at Midnight, Darkness at Noon: The Cunningham/McCreesh Letters (Orange Alert Press, 2009).

Cunningham lives with his girlfriend of twenty years and their two dogs on a small farm outside of Asheville, NC.

    Written in clear, descriptive prose, Hosho McCreesh's stories draw you into the dream and let you walk around in another world for a while. Vivid action across a spectrum of existential humanism and working class endurance.
