Area man reads novel excerpt

February 5, 2010

So here’s a little bit of Pepperland, read on the evening of February 3, 2010 in Chicago at the Reading Under the Influence monthly session at the Sheffield.  If you’re anywhere close to Chicago, you oughta go sometime.

Pepperland is set in Chicago during the winter of 1974 and it’s about the intersection of rock ‘n roll, computer technology and love.  In this chunk, narrator Pepper Porter is returning from a failed rendezvous with his old girlfriend–the glamorous Sooz who went underground years earlier as a member of the Weather Underground.

Thanks to Outta State Plate’s crack bassman and sound engineer David Partrick for wrestling with the recording, making it reasonably presentable.
