It's the late Sixties, the Beatles intact, Jimi Hendrix exploding and the Doors demanding the world. And on the East Coast, Asbury Park, New Jersey, will become the epicenter of a new brand of rock and roll.
But as "The Red Album of Asbury Park Remixed" unfolds, a boardwalk Liverpool lies in the future. Racial tensions, escalating crime and a fading reputation as a first-class resort have shaken the City by the Sea. Asbury is at tipping point.
Against the backdrop of a fabled town in trouble, 22-year-old musician Sam Nesbitt, who escaped a corrupt and dead-end life in "The Perfume Factory," struggles to rid himself of his personal demons, past and present, as he pursues a rock 'n' roll dream.
Alex Austin is a Los Angeles-based novelist and playwright. "The Red Album of Asbury Park Remixed" is the sequel to Austin's critically acclaimed novel "The Perfume Factory," a coming-of-age story set on the Jersey Shore. Portions of "The Red Album" have been published in CalArts literary magazine Black Clock.
