New Book! Garage Band by Dave Maresh


Let's face it, a Garage Band is a rite of passage for every American teenager, from 1954 till today. Whether as a full participant, or a by-stander who wished they had the nerve, or simply an audience member who loves to dance, garage bands define Americans. In this short novel. Dave captures the emotional experience of being a part of this great institution. 

Two other short novels round out this 360 page look at growing up and being grown up in America. If the final story doesn't have you rolling on the floor laughing, you probably slept through 2016. Dave has written a wonderful parody of a truth we still wonder about. It's hard to decide if it was all a bad dream that we're still a part of, or reality. For Dave, this doesn't matter - let's look at the fun of the experience. Dave doesn't "pick sides", he picks at the truth until you can't help but laugh. I'm sure Jesus, one of the central characters in the story, is laughing along with us. 

Good times!!!
