The Endless M begins with Dustin Hendrick’s nearly perfect but mysterious upbringing in rural Oregon. He is fiercely loved and protected by his salt-of-the-earth grandparents, yet he never fully fits into the small town they believed would shelter him. In these deeply personal reminiscences, the author examines his earliest and most powerful memories, his family and their secrets, his relationships and the scars they leave, and his own choices and mistakes, chronicling a winding and uncharted path to self-acceptance and the truth.
In his debut collection of essays, Dustin Hendrick peers unflinchingly—and often with sardonic humor—into his past, searching for answers to questions that have haunted him since childhood. Dustin lives in Portland, Oregon, with his husband Nate, a filmmaker. For more of his life and work visit dustinhendrick.com.
