Eduardo Pavez Goye Book Review

One of my favorite YouTube creators is the Chilean playwright, author, musician and photographer Eduardo Pavez Goye. If you’re unfamiliar with him then I highly recommend that you subscribe to his channel when you visit the video below. A month or so ago I sent him a copy of If Only The Names Were Changed as a thank you for all of the amazing content he’s been putting out into the world. I was thrilled to find he’d given my book a very positive, brief review on his 2016 year-end video. While this video may not be his norm – they’re usually about photography instead of books – I love to hear what other writers are reading and really loved his list.

Besides the video, he sent me his first self-published book of photography titled A Parade of Strangers that has some poems and reflections in it from a project he undertook called 30 Rolls in 30 Days (you can click through to those videos as well). It is a beautiful piece of work and I hope he might consider a second pressing so that I can recommend you pick up a copy – as for now though, they’re all sold out.

So how about you, what are you reading these days?

Ploughshares reviews “If Only The Names Were Changed”

“The Beauty of Self-deprecation in Andrew Miller’s IF ONLY THE NAMES WERE CHANGED” reviewed by Nicole L. Reber

“Fasten your seat belts. Andrew Miller’s alternative lit style is about to take you on a bumpy ride. His memoir in essays, If Only the Names Were Changed, vacillates between hyper-masculine and tender in terrain that traverses parental concerns about raising a daughter, drug and alcohol abuse, and how much of a jerk he is.”
