Sioux Falls Author Releases Book Of Nineteen Stories

Brian Bieber has just released his first book of short stories, "Nickel Plated Gold." The nineteen pieces collected in "Nickel Plated Gold" cover a wide tonal spectrum, from absurd ("How I Would Fight Certain Animals") to contemplative ("Love Life"). Bieber's writing has been featured multiple times on McSweeney's Internet Tendency, and he's the recipient of SASE/Jerome Foundation and South Dakota Arts Council grants. He studied creative writing at the University of Minnesota under humorist Garrison Keillor, memoirists Patricia Hampl and Mary Winstead, and noted poet Michael Dennis Browne.
