CCLaP Podcast 50: Author Kyle Beachy

CCLaP Podcast 50: Author Kyle Beachy

It's Monday, which means it's time for another episode of the CCLaP Podcast. Today: It's my recent 45-minute talk with local writer Kyle Beachy, author of the 2009 national sleeper hit The Slide, which among other things won the Chicago Reader award last year for best book by a local author, and was one of only two novels last year to receive a perfect score of 10 here at CCLaP. Also featuring the music of Chaos in the CBD and Elliott Smith. And don't forget, if you download the enhanced MP4 version linked to below and listen on an iPod (or simply subscribe to CCLaP's iTunes channel), chapters and links and images will be at your disposal too!
