Dave Slusher from the Internet radio show "Voices in Your Head" on IT Conversations did a long interview with me about my new book, Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town, and it's live for download now. Also, Gabriel Serafini has gotten his friend Damon Wallace to do a series of illustrations based on the book -- the first is live now!

This book dazzles by walking a dangerous high tightrope pulled taut between the widely separated poles of the story. The fairy-tale childhood, with its startling yet archetypically resonant improbabilities, has to consort with the hacker realities of the Kurt-based story, which in itself is not overtly unlikely, but still slightly gonzo. But, like the best mashup tunes, Doctorow’s narrative wedges the most consensually disparate elements together into a brilliant whole.
