Tindall, selected from his residency at the Beachwood Reporter, Chicago's most distinguished independentonline journal of politics and culture. "Gifted lyric-ranconteur J.J. Tindall's style is pure quicksilver. It glides unpredictably from ecstatic Beat testimony to Raymond Carver-esque elevation of the ordinary to the sublime."
