Born and raised on the Front Range in Colorado, he lives in Portland, Oregon.
"Dan DeWeese's elegantly written novel tells the story--alternately joyful and heartbreaking--of a father coming to terms with what he's made of his life. It's one of those novels I know I'll return to, and pass on, in admiration and delight."--Lauren Grodstein, author of A Friend of the Family
"In this assiduous, mysterious novel of a father's doings on his daughter's wedding day, Dan DeWeese gives us a portrait of one man's alienation, self-doubt, passivity, and, ultimately, his redeeming passion. With admirable formal restraint and unyielding sympathy, DeWeese delivers a whole adult life in a day."--Jon Raymond, author of Livability
"Oddly tense and ultimately, cleansingly sad, You Don't Love This Man wrings an amazing amount of pathos out of one (only seemingly) ordinary life."--Tom Bissell, author of The Father of All Things
"You Don't Love This Man is an exquisite puzzle. . . . This remarkable first novel gives rise to another, purely pleasurable conundrum. Which is more gorgeous, more satisfying here, the story itself, or the language DeWeese uses to tell it?"--Mary Rechner, author of Nine Simple Patterns for Complicated Women
"The careful, unpretentious opening of You Don't Love This Man can't possibly belie the cataclysm of interpersonal drama it contains. . . . The story has left me in that strange place between emotional exhaustion and raw, refreshed excitement for life. This amazing novel is why novels exist."--Patrick Somerville, author of The Cradle
