We are Billion-year-old Carbon: A Tribal-love-rock-novel Set in the Sixties on an Outpost Planet Called Memphis

Livingston Press, 2005 - Fiction - 200 pages
0 Reviews
Fiction. So, you know the 60's? Mesler's collage of stories, poems, and "music reviews" will carry you through the entire rollicking and devastating gamut, using the microcosm of Memphis, city of the blues--and city where Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. A novel? A would-be memoir? A how-to book on voodoo, Memphis style? Mesler presents us with all of these, and sings a paean over the loss of innocence that blasted through America with the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. at a Memphis hotel.
