Rabbit is about J, a male American folklorist, aged twenty-seven, collecting ghost folklore across states for freelance pieces. Along the halfway point of a 4,000 mile road trip through humid forestry and dry canyons, J meets with his homeless, mentally-ill father for the first time since age five. There are musings on sizes of stars and fragile creatures, the deaths of rabbits; mostly, it is a frantic hunt for family and its definition. Rabbit strives to mend dissolved relationships. It is a correspondence between author and editor, father and son, author and reader, mother and son; lover and best friend. Pink Fish Press is releasing the novel on July 22. Come to the event before it's released!

Jared John Smith is a Western Oregon University Alumni with his Bachelors in English Literature and Writing. He writes and sings for the Portland band, The Year and The Day. Rabbit is his first novel.

“A cops and courts reporter unwittingly discovers a new beat: celebrity suicide. And amid his scoops lies a troubling dark side that novelist Brian Krans explores in Assault Rifles & Pedophiles. Inside a masterfully developed plot with more unexpected twists than a Quentin Tarantino movie, madness everywhere in a world verging on apocalypse, the question becomes what any individual can do anything about it. In the midst of the chaos of it all, Krans’ central characters, the reporter and his celebrity lover, find a way.” — John Vivian, journalism professor at Winona State University.

Brian Krans has reported for newspapers from Hurricane Katrina, covered more than a hundred homicides, and investigated the politics of antibiotic resistance. He has also written on the health benefits of a Disney princess' twerking routine. His work has been published by numerous outlets including The Radvocate, Be-Mag, Wired, Charged, the Huffington Post, Yahoo! News, Fox News and BladeorDie.com. Originally from Wisconsin, he now lives in Oakland, Calif. Assault Rifles & Pedophiles: An American Love Story is his third novel.
