Tony DuShane grew up under the departure flight path of San Francisco Airport. He currently lives in San Francisco and enjoys long walks in his walk in closet.
After he read “Hunger” by Knut Hamsun, he knew his calling as a writer. His obsession for music and DJing began by making mix tapes for girls he liked when he was a Jehovah’s Witness teenager.
He’s the author of “Confessions of a Teenage Jesus Jerk” (Soft Skull Press) and writes for The San Francisco Chronicle and The Rumpus.
