Dan Burke Home - The Migration of Hair
The much anticipated novel by Dan Burke is finally in print! NPN
is proud to announce the publication of The Migration of Hair.
The Migration of Hair
is Dan Burke's second novel,
and a follow up to his hit 2003 novel,
Driving Into The Sun. In this reprise, we find main character
Tommy Aloysius questioning his life deep in the deserts of Arizona.
Climb aboard this freight train to hell as Tommy blasts off to
Eastern Europe as an ex-pornographer in exile.
There are plenty of
laughs and cries in store for you inside this beautifully printed
book, which includes 9 full-sized illustrations by
"And life is really no different than this: the migration of
hair. Things happen to us, for better or worse; we try to form
opinions, we try to effect change in our favor, but change
doesn’t care. Change will change whether we like it or not.
Man-smell—Wham! Thinning hairline—Wham! Your woman leaves
You get fired for being a pornographer—Wham! You get the point."

READER QUOTE: "I just finished the tonsorial tome and
loved it! I believe your writing style has gotten deeper and
more enriched. I'm not so sure I found the book either trashy or
dark. Those descriptors are hard to imagine whilst contemplating
fruit RELAXING in its display box! (Great word sculpting!). Your
use of simile and metaphor (The Tide for example) is solid.
The cover caught me off guard. I thought of old Hunter and Fear
and Loathing in Las Vegas. But I'll bet he never contemplated
telling the story from a Gnat's point of view. I very much
enjoyed the "Ugly American" train episode also. And in perfect
reverse order, lastly, I thought your Introduction was terrific!
Who really has the last word? I was with you all along the way
sans the hangover, cigar and ticket. It's my guess that as far
as the ticket goes, you're writing your own. Keep it up..."
