Raw Spoon monster illustrationRoss Boone (A.K.A. Raw Spoon) is an author and illustrator whose work has been compared to C.S. Lewis and Shel Silverstein. Ross’ debut novel, Absent Landlord, is about a sub-par, suicidal man who decides to dedicate what little talent he has to helping his screwed up housemates. Paste magazine rated the novel 8.7, praising its innovative multi-media design (e.g. it contains a bookmark that transforms into a post card).

As the heart bones break coverRead another experience of Paris, a different life. “Nina and you have the honeymoon you couldn’t afford twenty years before. You spoil yourselvs in expensive hotels. You drink too much wine and Nina buys too many clothes. You don’t begrudge yourselves anything. But, at Midnight Mass on the outskirts of Paris, watching a Nativity performance, your stomach heavy from foie gras and Christmas Eve canard, the over-indulgence suddenly weighs on you. Your thoughts turn unbidden to the past.”
