“Maybe if I’d been better at basketball or drawing cartoons or winning Nobel prizes or being a Lothario, I wouldn’t have felt the need to play so hard at my typewriter and computer. Or maybe it’s all because they made me take touch typing in junior high school. I honestly don’t know.”
— Andrew Amster
Smudgeworks Press publishes the work of Andrew Amster. Amster’s stories and poems are both honest and funny. They speak to life’s ability to bewilder us with unpredictable joys and heartaches, victories interspersed with pratfalls.
Here are two excerpts from reviews of Amster’s first novel, Raised by Wolves:
“Amster totally captures the tone of an adolescent girl. Raised by Wolves is one of those books where putting it down to eat was an intrusion. The dialogue is delightful! Looking forward to more from this talented writer.”
“Amster is witty and has somehow gotten into the mind of these teens. He captures the social scene in the school cafeteria and the conversations between the friends brilliantly.”
