Barry Miller debut novel "The Life of Kid Grayson" is the best indie debut I've ever read.
Chock full of history and music, Barry brings the story to life with his expert use of the pen, weaving words into images, transporting the reader like few writers can really do. In the case of this book, through the backwoods of Kentucky to the jungles of Viet Nam, from the bright lights of Nashville to the long American highways....kills a man before his 18th year, fights side by side with his fellow soldiers, plays guitar from hollers to bar stages & backrooms, and has his share of run-ins with those on both sides of the law.
Music is woven through this novel like a living pulse. And our own cultural history.
This is a must-read for all music lovers AND book lovers.
