I'll be reading with Quiet Lightning, the Bay Area's glorious "literary mixtape" on May 2nd, 7:30 pm, at the 41 Ross (that's 41 Ross Alley, San Francisco, CA, for those of you keeping score at home). It is going to be an amazing show, and probably my last reading in the Bay for a while, so I'd love to see you there! More details available here: http://quietlightning.org/
Great Divide is a novel about memory, the power of the past to shape and subsume the present, and the pressing, terrible need to escape the drowning force of history.
"A Fable" published in Monkeybicycle
"One day my grandfather was out driving. This was after the war, after my grandparents were married and living in Pennsylvania with my aunt Sarah, before my father was born. As he was driving, he became sure that he had hit something back along the road behind him, so he turned around to check."
