Walker Ryan, the world’s first pro skater/novelist, has dropped his latest part for Old Friends. ‘Smalltown’—like many good novels—has a beginning, middle, and end: First off, Ryan pays tribute to Dave Abair (a close friend who passed away in 2021); the meaty middle contains the aforementioned part; and then you have the credits, which connects the dots and ties it all up in a little bow (the butler did it). So, put down whatever book you’re reading and check out Ryan’s part, above!
Also, Ryan’s 271-page softcover book Top Of Mason is available with worldwide shipping from the Old Friends site, and $1 from every book sale will be donated to Glide in SF which offers meals and shelter services to people in need.
