Exclusive First Listen w/ Author Joe Heywood
The promotion of the Book Bug says, “Fans of Joe Heywood: Join us for a VIP preview of some of Joe’s not-yet published short stories. He wants to see what YOU think of some of his new, surprising characters. Joe will also read excerpts from his Woods Cop series and other writing.”
In fact, I won't be reading from Woods Cop stories but material from a new collection called UPPER PECULIAR, all stories about Yoopers, not Woods Cops. The stories are entitled: "Best Baseball Man Ever" "Once Through The Spin Dry" "Hearts of Wolves" And perhaps I'll read one of two other selections, which have nothing to do with the UP. Either, "La Cabra (The Goat"), which is taken from a new novel called BROWN BALL. Or "Bringing Home Sheep, about businessmen sent to an immigrant camp in California to search for employees from the company's Vietnam operation, which folded when the North Vietnamese came south, and almost everyone affiliated with the U.S. was forced to boogie. Many of them ended up in the US in camps around the country.
