If you see roadkill, think opera by Stephan Alexander Parker

Parker opens with his 25-year quest to identify music he recorded off a classical radio station in Chicago. He closes with the true-ish story of whitewater rafting guides from rival firms on the Snake River teaming up during the Yellowstone fires of 1988 to create an original, improvisational comedy sketch show, in the underground opera sensation Opening Night: A Roadkill Opera. In between are one-act plays with art entrepreneurs, kitchen characters, and boat saboteurs.

Stephan Alexander Parker guided whitewater raft trips, drove buses, and worked at the Jackson Hole Cinema during his years in Wyoming. He is working on his show business memoir, I Rode With Ben Johnson.

About the Author

Stephan Alexander Parker began his professional writing career when he noticed that Magic Industries, Inc., publisher of The Magic Magazine, had relocated their business offices to Nashville; he talked his way into a job filling mail orders and ended up writing catalogue descriptions. Within two years, he was shifting inventory between stores and making deliveries for Mills Bookstores. He had plenty of opportunities to gather material directly and through stories he heard while working as a bus driver, whitewater rafting guide, front desk clerk, technical writer, research manager, and light and sound man. After stints in Nashville, Branson, Chicago, Orlando, Jackson Hole, New Jersey, and Washington DC, he now lives in the old railroad town of Gaithersburg, Maryland, with photographer DJ Choupin. He is currently working on The Annotated Roadkill Opera. Or his show business memoir, I Rode With Ben Johnson. No, probably the opera thing.
