You may remember Joe Quirk presenting the very funny Sociobiology Future Salons.
He is out with a super cool new book Exult trying to answer the question: Is a life fully lived worth an early death? About a hang glider from Berkeley that is experiencing death and near death and everything in between ;-)
Joe used to hang glide, which is one of the reason the book is thick with emotions like the exhilaration of flying and the fear of the crash.
It is a fast paced page turner and keeps you mulling the essential question of how to live your life.
Correction: Next Saturday December 12th you have the chance to hear him read from his book.
In his own words: At the new Books Inc. in Berkeley, I'm going to read two sections
from my new novel, Exult. It's a philosophical action adventure, so
I'll read a harrowing action scene, and the harrowing argument that
I'm also going to talk about the promise and challenges of ebooks and
print-on-demand publishing, and I'm going to break the authors'
silence and address the deep problems with traditional publishing.
Only Books Inc. would allow me-- no, encourage me-- to talk about
this. Gotta tip the hat to Calvin Crosby, store manager.
