Hob Broun reissued at last!

Wonderful news: Open Road Media have just reissued OdditoriumInner Tube, and Cardinal Numbers, by the brilliant (and neglected) American author Hob Broun.

From Open Road’s website:

“Hob Broun was the son of Heywood Hale Broun and the grandson of Heywood Broun, the newspaper columnist. After publishing his first novel, Odditorium, Broun underwent a spinal surgery that saved his life but left him permanently paralyzed from the neck down. By blowing through a tube connected to a specially outfitted keyboard, Broun was able to complete his second novel, Inner Tube, and write the short stories of Cardinal Numbers. He was at work on a third novel when he died at age thirty-seven in 1987.”
