Ben Harrison

author, musician, playwright

“A distinctive voice with a delightful sense of humor and story telling ability. His songs paint a picture. His books and musicals are fueled by a wonderful sense of the ridiculous.

From California to Corpus Christi, Texas, and México this fast paced multigenerational novel follows the different characters as they navigate parenting, sex, art and money. Often funny and at times emotional, it's a racy and entertaining ride through their lives.

"[This book] belongs alongside Larry McMurtry's Texas novels. With a broad brush and even strokes, Harrison brings his characters alive with a mix of tenderness and empathy, along with a fistful of Texas grit mixed into the tapestry... Charlie Jones delivers."

John Leslie, author of the Gideon Lowry series


"Like a fellow-traveling fast friend—immediately connecting, open hearted, generous, intimate, honest and forever memorable...Charlie Jones is a poetic celebration of life in all of its fullness.”

Bud Navero, author of Key West Confidential
