    strong intelligent voice in fiction hardened by a difficult past and an intense competitive nature The star high school football player was sidelined by an injury and drank himself into oblivion At Syracuse University he took an elective English Literature course taught by the acclaimed short story writer George Saunders who recognized a spark in Dacey s writing and encouraged him to fan the flames Today he rises every morning at 4 a m and writes until 10 a m With the help of another renowned writer also teaching at Syracuse Mary Karr Dacey enrolled in the school s M F A program and graduated in 2007 He confesses that through hours of rewrites he has been able to reach the dark haunted heart of the American spirit CityBeat recently spoke to Dacey about the inspiration for his stories CityBeat It seems like it was a bit of kismet that enabled George Saunders to recognize your gift Patrick Dacey There was one story I wrote for that class about my brother dying and coming back as a ghost I thought it was awful but there was something in it that George Saunders saw He sort of took me aside and asked me what I had read which was about 10 books He told me to start with Hemingway and pick up a copy of Denis Johnson s Jesus Son and go from there I was 21 and was without much direction drinking far too much But his encouragement changed everything for me CB How bad was your drinking at that point PD I drank for six straight years and got arrested six times Tweet SHARE PRINT COMMENT FONT SIZE RATE Related content M Train Did You Ever Have Thirteen Ways of City on Fire Growing up Carlin Hibernation Guide Related to Literature Patrick Dacey We ve Already Gone This Far Cape Cod I thought I was the next Charles Bukowski and could write stories about the drinking life and I would just pass out on my computer every night I knew it was a problem and I got sober when I was 23 That was the best thing that ever happened to me CB But you still were at loose ends after graduating with a master s degree in English Lit from Syracuse PD After graduation I drove cross country and then moved to China When I was over there my mother got ovarian cancer and passed away Two weeks after she died I woke up one morning and said I m done with living irresponsibly I feel it was something very spiritual CB What drew you to write about war PD I think there s an internal war and an external war The internal war is about wanting to love and be loved as deeply as when we were younger And the external war is the reality we re now inundated with every day when we wake up whether it s news of war overseas or in our communities
