Overview

Set in the sub-suburbs, where trailer park and white-flight suburb rub elbows, this story rollicks across decades, from the 1980's to the present. An addled man tries to escape the shadow of his genius but despairing father only to find himself subjected to the same grandiose temptations to find the answers to life in a radio device designed to talk to angels or the dead. A fat, Faustian German opera, "Angels and Electrons" is a different sort of 'coming of age' novel -- if you can be said to come of age at 50, can conquer your despair, and can resist the recurring desire to take down the system that took down you.

Meet the Author

American author. I am happy to be a child of the space age and I still set my sights on great things. I put humor in everything I write because that is my disposition. If I chronicle the 20th century it is only because I have not given up on the 21st.
