About the Book
The Editors: Jake Fawson and Steve McNutte
Jake was born and raised in the southern Utah desert surrounded by a hoard of siblings and a few goats. He currently lives and drinks in New Orleans. As Peace Corps Volunteers (2000-2002), Jake and his wife Sarah managed the early development of an eco-tourism project in Gabon's Lope National Park.
Steve served in Gabon from 2000 to 2002. He received his M.F.A. in Nonfiction Writing from the University of Iowa where he was a post-graduate fellow with the International Writing Program. Currently, he's pursuing a Ph.D. in Language, Literacy and Culture, also at Iowa. His work has appeared in Lost magazine, the Des Moines Register, the Morning News, the Columbia Review and on National Public Radio's Weekend America: Iowa Edition. One of his essays was a finalist for The Florida Review's 2006 Nonfiction Prize. The next time Jake Fawson contacts him with an idea for a "quick project" he vows to leave the country and leave no forwarding address.
