About the author:
Shannon Hamann (1966-2004) received an MFA from the University of Iowa's Workshop. He is a widely published poet, but his poetry is not your grandmother's ode to wild flowers. A collection of his poems, titled Deathdoubledactyl, won Pavement Saw's 2010 Transcontinental Poetry Book award to be published in October of 2011.

His novel, Brad Pitt Won't Leave Me Alone has been compared to John Kennedy Toole's A Confederacy of Dunces by other writers, unaware of the coincidence of being published posthumously by his mother.

Recognition of his talent included a fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts, a Steinbeck Fellows Grant, and shortly before his death a travel grant to Japan from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Brad Pitt Won't Leave Me Alone
 

Authored by Shannon Hamann

Brad Pitt Won't Leave Me Alone was one of the top three novels in in the 2012 Anderbo Self Published Book Contest Award.


Phoebe Olenka's illusions and the antics she uses to cope with her life disappointments are so over the top, you will find yourself wanting to find out what this loon, indeed a veritable hoot, will do next. One of her many pretenses is that she is a qualified therapist. She has ONE sad-sack client. The fantasy that is most outrageous is that Brad Pitt has fallen in love with her based upon her fan letters to him. Her odd means of coping make the novel a fun read.
