You may not remember me, but my name is Michael Murray and I used to write for Pajiba. I was the one who did dry, easily avoided pieces on antique TV shows or occasional forays into “humor.” As fate would have it, I now have a “humor” book out called A Van Full of Girls that’s being published by Insomniac Press. Please buy as many copies as you possibly can as I am a new father and wholly unemployable.

This is my son.

His wardrobe is very expensive.

Have you ever been in a van full of girls? All the girls are alive and they’re happy. You’re all heading off to do something whimsical and flirty and maybe a little bit drunk. You’re going to see a Beach Boys tribute band.

You’re going to the casino to bet it all on red. You’re going to a séance that you just know is going to end in skinny-dipping. Something like that. A Van Full of Girls is a collection of short, dizzy, funny things. It’s zippy and unpredictable, like a mongoose, but it’s dead sexy. You will want to take Polaroids of each precious, little missive contained within and then tape each one to your fridge. You will want to give this book to somebody you need to love you.

Michael Murray currently lives and works in Toronto with his wife, son, and dog. He has an extensive, if flawed, wardrobe and is the coach of a floor hockey team called the Jesus Cobras. He won the New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest and pines for the Montreal Expos. He works as a creative writer, commentator, blogger, and “journalist,” and as he is modest, he feels awkward talking about his genius, which he recently discovered does not translate into IQ tests. Murray has a degree from a university, skipped grade three, and is currently at work on his second book, People Say I Remind Them of Don Draper.

Dustin is the founder and co-owner of Pajiba. You may email him here, follow him on Twitter, or listen to his weekly TV podcast, Podjiba.
