New essay “The Sixteenth Tape” published in Creative Nonfiction Magazine’s TRUE STORY series. Careful, it’s a wild one.
As part of the Michigan Notable Books Program, I’m doing several library events in April and May, 2015. Given that the libraries have scheduled me for two-hour engagements, I’m planning on performing some acoustic music, as well, for the sake of variety. Please come by and say “hello” if you’re in the area. More to follow.
SAT APRIL 25 [2-4pm]
Carson City Public Library [2pm]
SUN APRIL 26 [2-4pm]
East Lansing Public Library (East Lansing) [3 pm]
Thanks for all the support in 2014, one strange, wonderful, challenging year. It was hard to know what to do with a book like SOYK, once I’d finished writing it. The nights of work were easy compared to sharing the book with anyone interested in reading it. I’m still sorting the ashes into respective piles here, making sense of what’s happened, but what’s certain is that many friends, old and new, came through for me last year, and I am endlessly grateful. It feels good to be deep into a novel and letting go.
Rolling Stone gave the book Top Ten status in its year-end list.
SOYK was named a Michigan Notable Book, and I’ll be doing some events for that in ’15.
Vol. 1 Brooklyn and Large Hearted Boy also listed SOYK as a “best book” of 2015, as did some other publications. Thanks to these kind people.
And thanks for dropping in. If you’re into online living, please stop back by—I’ve vowed to be more active on the Transmission page, a dump for home projects and random missives.
Take care, and be well.
