Justin St. Germain

authorphoto2I spent four good years at the Wildcat, and still count
a few of my former coworkers among my closest friends. It’s funny to
think that more people probably read my college football Staff Picks
than will ever read the book I just published, and I wish I’d
appreciated the Wildcat’s huge reach and readership more. (Maybe then
I wouldn’t have written so many deeply stupid things, some of which
still survive online a decade later.) But mostly I remember reading
through Staff Save at the end of every semester and thinking, “If this
ever gets out, it’ll ruin us all.”



Justin St. Germain is the author of Son of a Gun, a memoir, which
was released in August by Random House and has been a New York Times
Book Review Editors’ Choice, an Amazon Best Book of the Month, The
Arizona Republic’s Book of the Month, a Barnes & Noble Discover Great
New Writers selection, a GQ Punch List selection, an Oprah.com Book of
the Week, and was featured on NPR’s All Things Considered. He received
his BA and MFA from the University of Arizona and was a Wallace
Stegner Fellow in fiction writing at Stanford University. He has
taught at Arizona, Stanford, and the University of San Francisco, and
is currently the Joseph M. Russo Professor of Creative Writing at the
University of New Mexico.
