Dead Man Rolling

The lives and deaths of writers are often as ugly as they. Readers clamor to know more, they want everything revealed. When that could only spoil the mystery. Tour buses in Key West bellow out the names of the bars they pass, informing tourists ‘this was Hemingway’s favorite place to drink in the afternoons’. I would be more impressed to find a bar Hemingway did not frequent. Writers are a tribe oft

Until Death

She’d fallen in love many times before, each real, meaning she’s fickle, meanwhile he had never had a girlfriend, meaning he’s emotionally undeveloped. Coupl’a lightweights. They were insanely attracted to each other. They played at home, tried on outfits and posed before mirrors and snapped photographs. They cooked together. They laughed. They were twenty-four and in love and they married. Why wouldn’t it last

Mia Borders Better Than Ever

I’m playing Mia Borders, her new album Fever Dreams, thankfully available on iTunes, and properly recorded. One thing I’ll say for Ms Mia is she does a good recording. She’s a pro and by the way she does most everything herself.

Sunday Story: Lilly

Sunday Story: No More Vampires

              Exposé! I don’t have to think about vampires ever again. They were never my cuppa. When I learned they were from Serbia, not Transylvania as has been erroneously promoted, I figured I should own them. A real Serb demystified the lore. The myth of the vampire is a technique for parents to control their children. Allegedly Serbs are prone to pranks and naughtiness and pa

Troubled Boy

Years ago I had some trouble with a boy. I was ten years old and he was fourteen, and he had a crush on me. We were in a co-ed boarding school on the south coast of England, a bleak spot beloved by the locals for its white chalk cliffs and creepy foggy heaths. I hated it. I spent a good deal of time being bad and leading rebellions. On a nightly basis we’d break out and go ransack something. But the boy, he sta
