Education Program Faculty Gary Delanoeye, published his third book on February 6, 2019. Clean Shorts is a collection of twelve very different short stories. Each one is drawn from Gary’s experiences and/or his imagination. Some of the stories come from travel adventures… or misadventures. Some have a local flavor, things that happened closer to Gary’s home near Santa Barbara. The stories are about people and their places and sometimes, people who are out of place.
“Writing is such great fun,” said Gary. “Much of the fun comes from just remembering those weird little incidences in life that can be grown into a story.”
Clean Shorts breaks from the tradition of Gary’s two novels Checking in at the Crowbar Hotel and Letters from the Outs that explore the culture of incarcerated youths. Instead, Clean Shorts covers different slices of life with humor, insight, and drama.
