The Goddamn Dave Hill Show Last Night... Oh, Yeah!

Tommy with Dave Hill
The Goddamn Dave Hill Show and WFMU treated me like family last night. Thank you, Dave Hill and Shana for a Ballantine Blast reception and your warm enthusiasm for "I Hate the Dallas Cowboys tales of a scrappy New York boyhood." 

Your recommendation that folks must buy "I Hate the Dallas Cowboys" is the Golden Ticket.

Thank you, Jaime Nelson, for arranging my invitation to the show and for the photos here with Dave and his guests: Jordan Morris and Michael Shannon's Corporal.

Listen to last night's The Goddamn Dave Hill Show at this link  (10.28.14)

Next Friday, November 7th @ 6:30pm, I'll read from my new book at Logos Bookstore on York Avenue in Yorkville.

Praise for the book:

“Thomas R. Pryor has written a sweet, funny, loving memoir of growing up old-school in a colorful New York neighborhood. A story of sports, family, and boyhood, you’ll be able to all but taste, smell, and feel this vanished world.”
Kevin Baker, author of the novels “Dreamland,” Paradise Alley,” and “Strivers Row,” as well as other works of fiction and nonfiction

“Tommy Pryor’s New York City boyhood was nothing like mine, a few miles and a borough away, and yet in its heart, tenderness, and tough teachable moments around Dad and ball, it was the mid-century coming of age of all of us. A rousing read.”
Robert Lipsyte, former city and sports columnist, The New York Times

“Pryor could take a felt hat and make it funny.”
Barbara Turner-Vesselago, author of “Writing Without A Parachute: The Art of Freefall”

“Pryor burrows into the terrain of his childhood with a longing and obsessiveness so powerful it feels like you are reading a memoir about his first great love.”
Thomas Beller, author of “J.D. Salinger: The Escape Artist”
