Brad Listi: Attention. Deficit. Disorder.

It's a novel.
It's a story about how difficult it is to find meaning in the Information Age.
It's a contemporary rendition of the classic coming of age novel.
It features a man who wants to shave his head for reasons he can't explain.
It features a really old man and a really young prostitute.
It features a big desert, a charming mentally disabled man, and some hardcore spelunking.
If you so desire, you can order it online at:
Barnes & Noble
....Or at any other online bookseller.
Otherwise you can pick it up at your local bookstore.
Or you can steal it.

Check out new blog: Buns and Barbs

Bunny and Barbara became good friends in the 7th grade when they were they only students not willing to pay a dime to see a 7th grade softball game at recess. They were were made to stay in an empty classroom. They wrote poems and talked about "psychotic sensations" which were really feelings of being seperate from their bodies..or something like that. They have lived in seperate states both physically and psychologically for years but have always reconnected by phone and now by blog. They thought their musings might be worth sharing.
