Dale Wisely b. 1956
Mr. Wisely is a lyricist who has just finished an opera based on the life of soul singer James Brown with music by Philip Glass. The part of Mr. Brown will be performed by Reese Witherspoon. In addition, he owns and operates a chain of epistemological hardware stores, A Priori Nuts and Bolts. His book, Dummies Guide to Chicken Soup for the Soul of the Presbyterian Small Appliance Repairman, is in its 39th printing, and the movie rights for that book were recently purchased by Michael Cimino. Mr. Wisely may actually be the founder of three online literary journals, Right Hand Pointing (poetry and short fiction), Left Hand Waving (first person narratives), and White Knuckle Press (prose poetry).
