New Book from LA Columnist

Los Angeles columnist and NSNC member Patrick Caneday has just published his first book.

Crooked Little Birdhouse: Random Thoughts on Being Human is a collection of Caneday’s “Small Wonders” columns that have appeared in the Glendale News Press and Burbank Leader. But, with the addition of a series of previously unpublished, lengthier essays, he explores his life and position as a house-dad/writer, in more depth than 800 words allows.

The result is an “everyman” life story weaved through random insights on the world, people and a birdhouse. With trademark wit and poignant observation, he’s not afraid to offer himself as proof of our shared suffering, humanity, humility and survival, in a book that is more memoir than compilation.
