One of the readings we've got coming up this month not only takes the author back to his youth but also takes me back a few years. From 1982 through 1987, I worked as an editor for a technical trade magazine publisher in Eugene. One of my colleagues at Aster Publishing was Guy Maynard. Guy's first novel, The Risk of Being Ridiculous, has just been published, and Guy will be here on Thursday, October 28th, to read from it.
We'll be telling you more about the book and event closer to the date, but in the interim check out this piece that Guy wrote about how he tried to recapture the Guy of his youth, by immersing himself in the music and memorabilia of his younger days. The article is available on the wonderful new website, Northwest Book Lovers; you can find a link to the site on the upper right-hand corner of our blog. Check it out -- it's got great articles and reviews on all things book-related.
