Hi, I'm Fred Besteman. I hail from Rudyard in the Upper Peninsula. I moved back to the US this year after living in Japan for a few years. I'm new face at McLean and Eakin although I've worked at bookstores in the past. I guess I just can't stay away from books!
I like doing stuff outdoors especially swimming in the great lakes.
I primarily read fiction but like to read a bit of everything. Some of my favorite authors are Henry Miller, Jim Harrison, Haruki Murakami, and David Foster Wallace.
The past few years I've really enjoyed reading about food and drooling over cookbooks.
