Daniel Grandbois

Of early French Canadian descent, Daniel Grandbois was born in Minnesota and raised in Colorado, where he lives today with his wife and children. His first book, The Hermaphrodite (An Hallucinated Memoir), with forty original woodcuts by renowned Argentine printmaker Alfredo Benavidez Bedoya and translated into Spanish by Liliana Valenzuela (Sandra Cisneros, Julia Alvarez), is forthcoming from Green Integer in spring 2008. His second book, Unlucky Lucky Days, a collection of absurd tales and prose poems, is forthcoming from BOA Editions in June 2008. Daniel’s work has appeared or will appear in Fiction, Sentence, The Greensboro Review, Del Sol Review, Double Room, the anthology Online Writing: The Best of the First Ten Years, and ATA’s Beacons, among others. Also a musician, Daniel has played upright bass for two bands on Jello Biafra’s Alternative Tentacles label: Tarantella and Slim Cessna’s Auto Club. The latter had the honor of opening for Johnny Cash in Las Vegas in 1998.

Daniel Grandbois’ “The Other Half,” “Chinese Finger Trap,” “New Heaven,” and “The Hermit Crab” appear in Caketrain Issue 05.

Caketrain is a literary journal and press based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Our interest is in bringing you, reader, the very best in contemporary creative writing, full stop. Our goals are for each issue of our journal to submerge you in a birthing tank for gelatinous language monsters, young masses of tentacular foci undulating as directed (in all, at once) by our eclectic stable of contributors; for each new book we publish to seduce and ensnare you, sometimes intangibly, always undeniably; and for you, reader, to be able to draw at least one passage from our banks that prods your mind with such precision and power that it feels as if it was written for your eyes alone. To wit and to whet, here is a snippet, a slight nip of our delicious lit mix:
