In METAMEMOIRS, Perry Glasser riffs on the soundtrack of his generation -- from Jefferson Airplane to Bonnie Raitt to Patsy Cline -- to look back on his life as a lover, husband, father and teacher. "A literary version of a great rock album. A set of great tunes in different keys and rhythms... It's also the story of our generation, and how we got to where we are by doing the best we could with what we knew at the time. And for all the art and intellect, what makes it go is simplicity and honesty. Just... truth. And it deserves to go platinum." -- David Bradley, THE CHANEYSVILLE INCIDENT. Perry Glasser is the author of four prior books of prize-winning prose. RIVERTON NOIR was recipient of the Gival Press Novel Award (2012); DANGEROUS PLACES, a short fiction collection that received the 2008 G.S.
