“Reed has a gift of creating ridiculous characters who are not caricatures. Because his narrator engages his quirky friends with an earnest familiarity, the reader finds their predilections and idiosyncrasies credible. Endowed with this surreal cast of characters, ‘Songs from Richmond Avenue’ hums along on its own perverse, comic logic.”
– Michael P.Hartnett, author of “Generation Dementia”
“Michael Reed’s Songs from Richmond Avenue was the cynically humorous story I’ve been waiting for. It was a well-written novel that didn’t take itself too seriously, and in turn had some poignant moments.”
– Lexy Voytek, ABQ Free Press Weekly, Albuquerque,N.M.
“All the more impressive when considering that “Songs From Richmond Avenue” is Texas journalist Michael Reed’s debut as an author, this deftly crafted, compellingly entertaining novel showcases his genuine flair for narrative storytelling. Highly recommended and certain to be an immediate and enduringly popular addition to community library Contemporary General Fiction collections.”
– Able Greenspan, Midwest Book Review

Michael Reed, a finalist for the 2017 McGrath House Indie Book Award for fiction and the 2018 Next Generation Indie Book Award for humor, is an award-winning Texas journalist, meaning he’s used to living in inexpensive apartments and driving paid-for used cars. He does not have a wife or children, which is probably best for all concerned, and has never owned a washer or drier, something he takes great pride in. “Songs From Richmond Avenue,” which recently received a Literary Titan Gold Award, is the Southern Illinois University graduate’s first novel.
