About the author:
Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Martin Bannon has lived in Oregon's politically schizophrenic Clackamas County since 1998.
"Senseless Confidential," a comedic romp through the county's backwoods, is his third book.
Bannon, who has lived in places as varied as Puerto Rico, Switzerland, and Utah, majored in Soviet Studies to pursue a career in Intelligence. When he discovered that there was no such thing, he became a writer instead. He has been living out cover legends ever since.
He is fluent in three languages and can make educated errors in several more. He has traveled to 38 of the US states and 19 foreign countries. He has been a tea guest of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, pursued by Hungarian security forces, and questioned by East German authorities (all for unrelated reasons). He often goes by other names.
He has been adopted by a cat named Rudy, who is sometimes mistaken for a meatloaf.
A neo-noir absurdist romp through the Oregon Cascades
Nick Prince just wants to go drown his sorrows at the Safari Club and pine for Beth, his lost college love. But before he can do that, his job with the U.S. Census Bureau requires him to face down reluctant respondents in the remote forests of Oregon, who repel him with everything from pit bulls to shotguns.
When a chance encounter in the tiny town of Elwood lands him in the midst of a loopy polygamist clan, it sets off a wild, wacky race to save himself, his job, and his bleeding heart. You won't know whether to laugh or cry as Nick struggles to sort out the multiple warrants and women that stand between him and his sanity.
