Oh, blast... Jim Tully was one of five obscure authors I'd hoped to write a bio of over the next decade, but it seems that Mark Dawidziak and Paul Bauer have beaten me to it. Put me down for a copy anyway---maybe two!

For those of you who have not yet experienced him, Tully is an exceedingly dark and depressing writer, but wonderfully poetic. For the first-time reader, I'd recommend his classic "biography" _Beggars of Life_, or any of the stories originally published in _ The American Mercury_ and collected as _Shadows of Men_.
