Paul Constant

Paul Constant—The Stranger’s books editor—has had his writing appear in Newsweek, the UTNE Reader, The Progressive, and alternative weeklies around the country. He’s also worked at Borders (ugh) and the Elliott Bay Book Company. He became the 2009 I.D. Spring Roll Eating Champion after consuming 23 deep-fried spring rolls in two minutes. Paul has lived in Seattle for more than a decade and likes it much, much more than his home state of Maine.
