Mr. Brukermon suffered a serious head injury at age 14 while hanging out the back of a speeding Volkwagon. Since then, he's done a lot of really strange things. Things like giving baths to cats, chasing squirrels up trees and voting. As a culmination of a really weird life, Mr. Brukermon antisocial tendencies have resulted in his becoming an author. After his groundbreaking book "The History of Toenail Clippings" was a financial failure, despite its sweeping success in anti-academic circles, he turned his genius to picture books. "The Eclectic Coffee Table" is his first offering in this area.
