My colleague and friend David Rachels has an interesting short piece at Paul D. Brazill’s blog. The subject is freedom of artistic expression, focused through the lens of the career of noir writer Gil Brewer (a subject on which David is expert, having edited some of Brewer’s work. I think David is working on a bio of Brewer as well, but if I’m mistaken, I hope he’ll correct me.)
Meanwhile, David’s 17-year-old son Gus will unleash a new album upon an unsuspecting world tomorrow. If you like your rock and roll young, loud, and snotty, you could do much worse. Get a preview here.
