Quotes & Awards

  • “If you’re a newcomer to Portland, it’s the letter home you’re too busy to write yourself. If you’re an old-time resident, it’s a look into what those green-haired, skinny-jeaned young people are up to.”

    Portland Monthly

  • “This book he offers great little insights into such things as rain, Portland’s nicknames, food carts, bands, Portland drivers, strip clubs, tattoos, tater tots, snow, bikes, beer, and much more.”

    Portland Tribune

  • “All you need to live like a true Portlander is a box of vegan cupcakes, a fixed-gear bike, and this book.”

    Bill Oakley, writer/producer of Portlandia and The Simpsons
