Pepperland – by Barry Wightman (Available Spring 2013)
Starred review from Booklist: "Wightman’s first novel is a riotous, occasionally electrifying celebration of love and music, capturing the turmoil of its times with a touch of otherworldliness that seems right in sync with rock ’n’ roll...."
Pepperland is a noir love letter to the magic of music, the talismanic powers of new-fangled computers and a generational urge to change the world. It's one big, historical, multi-track concept album. Funny and satirical, told in fast-moving rock 'n roll riffs and rhythms by the noted Music and Cultural Authority, Martin Alan "Pepper" Porter, Pepperland is about missing information, missing people, missing guitars, paranoia, Q & A, brothers, revolution, Agents of the Federal Government, IBM, interviews in Rolling Stone (real, imagined, or otherwise), Hugh Hefner, the birth of the Internet, a talking bear, the 18 minute Watergate tape gap, a Dark Stranger, love, death and the search for it amidst the wreckage of recession-wracked, entropically rundown mid-seventies America. Think the Ramones meet Jane Fonda meets Bill Gates. More: http://www.barrywightman.com/
