There is a very nice review of my new work, "Study Hall Drawings" in this week's Austin Chronicle. Put me in a good mood. I had no idea my own nostalgia could inspire so much in others -even transposing it to another decade by the incredibly generous reviewer. Austin, Texas is ground zero for "Slacker" and "Dazed and Confused", after all. But I didn't go to high school here. I grew up in a then-very-small (one stoplight) farming town that was stuck in a bit of a time-warp during the 80's, where, just as in the not-too distant 70's, many of the boys still had long, feathered hair just like the girls.
