Groovy Giveaway: At Danceteria and Other Stories by Philip Dean Walker



This week's Groovy Giveaway is a paperback copy of At Danceteria and Other Stories by Philip Dean Walker.

In these immaculately crafted stories inspired by the 1980s, Philip Dean Walker spotlights a cast of celebrities and historical figures in situations unsettling as Day-Glo and poignant as roses while the specter of AIDS looms.

“This highly original meditation on the '80s is like nothing else you've read. Dead celebrities are brought back to life in the oddest places: Jackie O in a New York sex club, Princess Di in a London drag bar, Rock Hudson at the White House. Plus Sylvester, Halston and Liza, Keith Haring, Madonna, and, best of all, an anonymous narrator who notices that only good-looking guys in New York are getting the new gay cancer. Odd conjunctions, great wit, and the shadow of AIDS make these stories deceptively light and strangely disturbing.” — Andrew Holleran, author of Dancer from the Dance

To enter to win this Groovy Giveaway, email your name and address to deepdish73@gmail.com. Winners must have a US mailing address, and entries close at midnight on Thursday, January 26 (CST).
