Dan Bryan is a writer and data analyst from Chicago. He was born on August 6, 1985 in Columbus and lived in several locations while growing up. He attended the University of Chicago and graduated with a B.A. in History in 2006. The Glow is his first work of fiction, though he has also written extensively on history and current events.
It's 2004 in America and Quentin Ross does not elect to visit Chile with his new girlfriend for spring break. Instead he finds himself criss-crossing the country with his roommate and with fellow travelers of various persuasions. However, it is through Olivia Dupree that Quentin might wonder about the narrowness of his own perspective in this novella with picaresque and coming-of-age elements.
