The Fry Pans Aren't Sufficing is funny, but this collection also defines an elemental loneliness. I know these people, their voices, their lives caught between earthy double-entendres in the fun-loving Crescent City. The hard-edged comedy of Burgess's narrative is shaped and honed, always merciful, and is peppered with dialogue that's reliable and masterfully executed. Personal and surreal, these poignant survival stories coax the reader into moments of shared feeling, into truth, reflection, and simple beauty.
--Yusef Komunyakaa, Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Emperor of Water Clocks and The Chameleon Couch

About the Author

Peyton Burgess was born in Richmond, Virginia, where, for fun, he skateboarded and fished, and, for money, he picked up golf balls at a local driving range. Inspired by the many visits to his grandparents in New Orleans, he moved there and received BA degrees in English and communications from Loyola. He worked as a reporter covering crime, courts, and culture for spans of time in New Orleans, Portland, Ore., and Key West. In 2009, he moved to New York City to earn an MFA in fiction from New York University. He now lives with his wife and son in New Orleans where he teaches composition and creative writing at Loyola and works in the Monroe Library. His writing has appeared in Salon, Chicago Quarterly Review, Banango Street, Fiction Southeast, and Big Muddy, among others.
