Best of Austin

Thrilled to share that I was voted Best Local Author in the Austin Chronicle’s 2012 Best of Austin Poll. Humbled and happy.

Here’s what the Chronicle had to say:

Best of Austin 2012
Best Local Author/Poet: Owen Egerton
Well, duh. He’s long been among the city’s favored writers, way before his Dalton-published Harold, the Illegitimate Son of God was picked up for paperback reissue by Soft Skull Press, and he’ll continue to be that, long after his next novel, next spring’s Everyone Says That at the End of the World, has reached the pinnacles of literary cred – the $3 carts at Half Price Books. And that’s not only because Egerton so frequently appears with Master Pancake Theater and hosts Alamo Drafthouse shows and doctors Hollywood screenplays and is one hell of a sweet and funny guy. More like: Because he’s one damned fine wordsmith and we love his books
