Just up on n+1: notes on “Maple Shade,” excerpts from the new memoir.

“Maple Shade,” an adaptation from the new memoir (which I am finishing up, damn it!), is just up on the n+1 website as part of their City by City feature. It’s a meditation on my hometown of Maple Shade, NJ. Read it here.

A photo by my old friend and fellow Shader Thomas V. Hartmann (I call him Tom, but that’s me) accompanies the feature. There’a another one above as well.

    I love reflections on small towns that you hate as a kid. Great stuff, looking forward to more!

    I spent most of my childhood and all of my teens and early twenties in The Shade. Been living in West LA for the last six years. Thanks for writing this bittersweet meditation that perfectly expressed how I feel about my beloved / hated hometown.
