Writer, Musician, Outdoorsman, Brian Daniels shares his new release Thoughts of an Average Joe, through humor and guitar music, at Beyond the Sea Book Festival at Lincolnville Beach, Friday, July 25th, from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

By Beyond the Sea | Jul 15, 2014

In 2009, author Brian Daniels created Joe Wright—a clueless, middle-aged, thick-around-the-middle man hopelessly stuck in the twentieth century. Thoughts of an Average Joe is the hilarious rambling of a man whose commentaries voice the confusion and angst of a simple, old dude trying to make sense of life in the modern world.

In this book, Joe offers his thoughts about the many issues that confuse or annoy him: “I’m Not Ready for the Wireless World,” “Poachers Are Not Hunters,” and “I’m Comfortable in My Old Skin,” are just a few examples. He, like many men, struggle to understand his “little woman” and others of her gender in several essays, including “I’m Afraid of the Little Woman,” and “I’ve Noticed That Women Are Not Like Men."  You’ll meet Joe, Smalltown (his beloved northern New England hometown), his fascinating friends and family members, Dan’s Market, Small-Mart, Blake’s Esso Station, and the Smalltown News.                  He hopes his stories will bring a smile to your face and warm your heart. Maybe you’ll even agree with most of his Thoughts. If not, he’ll be quick to tell you . . . well . . . you are just wrong.
