"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."

Keith Nunes is from Lake Rotoma, New Zealand. He was a newspaper sub-editor for 20-plus years but after a nervous breakdown he moved into rural squalor and writes for the sheer joy of it. He's been published around NZ and increasingly in the UK and US. He is a Pushcart Prize nominee and his chapbook Crashing the Calliope is sold only by the lunatic fringe.
