I’ve got an essay about poster artist / rock novelist / baseball historian / narco-troubador Camden Joy / Tom Adelman up over at the Los Angeles Review of Books. “I always thought of Camden Joy as something that would carry you through the darkest times.” A portion of this essay was presented as a talk at the 2013 Midwest Modern Language Association conference. My co-panelists included Adam Wilson, Trinie Dalton, and David. N. Meyer. The panel was moderated by Prof. Samuel Cohen (University of Missouri). Tom Adelman served as keynote speaker for the conference.
