About The Author

Lindsay Wincherauk is a record-holding one-eyed quarterback, author, freelance opinion-editorial columnist, and human resources, guru. On several occasions, he’s been mistaken for Vin Diesel and the Domino Pizzas Noid. Well, most of that was true, except, of course, for the Noid. He knows his memoir (Meta) is breathtakingly compelling, filled with unsettling twists and turns, amusing + disturbing family moments, giddiness, and; gripping painful moments that morph quickly into brightness. With every page turned, he invites readers to participate in his life's ride. If the prose falters, he was told to add gratuitous high-speed nudity, naked, nudity. Here are the straight goods: Lindsay Wincherauk writes about what he sees—life and a world filled with the seemingly unrelenting noise spinning around us daily. And, damn it, he sees a lot of life with his one working eye. At times, he leaves normal and trips into atmospheric—a pleasant break from the mundane.
