Bought Me An Outboard Evinrude: A Literary Playlist

There's no way around it: music permeates everything. So its no surprise that my novel, Rooted, is In many ways about music. Not just the music of the punk rock character, Slade Mortimer, but music of a time and region: 1970’s West Tennessee. A time of outlaw country: Willie, Waylon, and Hank – Sr. and Jr. A time when the women of country held their own: Tanya Tucker, Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, and Dolly, of course.
