English MA student, Ian Thomas Malone, re-releases 2 of his books
Oct. 26th, 2015— CGU English MA student, Ian Thomas Malone, re-launches his comedic treatises, “Five College Dialogues” and
“Five More College Dialogues” on October 16th, 2015 as part of Eleventh Hour Literary Press’ Fall catalog.
Ian Thomas Malone is an author and a yogi from Greenwich, CT. He is a graduate of Boston College, where he
founded The Rock at Boston College. He is the grandson of noted Sherlockian scholar Colonel John Linsenmeyer.
Ian has published thousands of articles on diverse subjects such as popular culture, baseball, and social
commentary. His favorite things to post on social media are pictures of his golden retriever Georgie and his collection
of stuffed animals. Ian believes firmly that "there's more to life than books you know, but not much more," a quote
from his hero Morrissey. When he's not reading, writing, or teaching yoga, he can probably be found in a pool playing
water polo. He aspires to move to the Hundred Acre Wood someday, though he hopes it has wi-fi by then.
“Five College Dialogues is a philosophic comedic treatise on college life told through the eyes of George Tecce, a
graduate student working as a teaching assistant for an eccentric English professor. Told through Socratic dialogue,
George, his students, and his mentor explore all the ins and outs of college life as they examine the state of postmillennial
academia. Humorous and thought provoking, the Dialogues are the perfect resource for students,
especially those with a philosophy requirement, as well as anyone who wants to relive their four years in an
Five College Dialogues and Five More College Dialogues are the first two books in The Dialogues Series. Two new
books in the series, Five High School Dialogues and Dead Batteries Tell No Tales: The Prequel to Five High School
Dialogues, are slated to release over the next several months.
The Dialogues Series can be found on eleventhhourliterary.com, as well as major retailers such as Amazon and
Barnes & Noble.
Malone is available for interviews and appearances. For booking presentations, media appearances, interviews,

Praise for The Dialogues
"Ian Thomas Malone is a bright young voice in American letters. His smart, witty and original take on American
college life will resonate with his generation...and mine!"
- Paul Levine, author "State vs. Lassiter"
“As a whole, the dialogues are clearly a statement on the ups and downs of the college experience.”
– Colorado College Catalyst
“Unlike some publications on college life, “Five College Dialogues” exposes the raw truth and harshness of the
collegiate experience. Malone does an excellent job with this exposition. The students’ problems are not sugarcoated.”
