Following Grandpa Jess

by TJ Baer
 
Jess Madison has problems. His aging parents seem hell-bent on belittling him in new and increasingly infuriating ways, he's fallen for his best--and, unfortunately, heterosexual--friend David, and his grandmother has recently taken to climbing out on her roof in hopes of contacting the spirit of her late husband, the much-beloved Grandpa Jess.

All Jess wants

Overview

Jess Madison has problems. His aging parents seem hell-bent on belittling him in new and increasingly infuriating ways, he's fallen for his best--and, unfortunately, heterosexual--friend David, and his grandmother has recently taken to climbing out on her roof in hopes of contacting the spirit of her late husband, the much-beloved Grandpa Jess.

All Jess wants to do is live his life and feed his goldfish in peace, but instead, he finds himself at the heart of a familial clash that seems ready to tear his family apart. With the help of his two younger brothers, uber-manly AJ and lovably weird Thomas, Jess sets out to reconcile his family, keep Grandma off the roof, and sort out the mess his life has become--with just a little help from Grandpa Jess.

Meet the Author

Born in a small town in Pennsylvania, TJ Baer wrote her first novel-length work at the age of thirteen, and spent the majority of her teenage years writing stories, poems, and a rather dramatic emo diary that she would now very much like to burn.

After graduating from college and spending a dull handful of years working a computer job, she ran off to teach English in Japan and ended up living there for four years. She’s been teaching ever since, and now lives in Chicago with her cat, who is a decent enough roommate but never chips in enough for rent.

Her debut novel, Talking About Fungus, was published in 2005. Prior to that, her writing was featured in various chapbooks and literary magazines, and her one-act play, Alison’s Box, was performed at a 2004 theater festival in her hometown. She is currently working on a GLBT fantasy novel and a non-fiction account of her time in Japan, though these days most of her time is spent watching episodes of Community and neglecting housework.
