Harry Kollatz, Jr., who wrote about our former office’s very own block of Broad Street in Richmond, Virginia, has now published his first novel: Carlisle Montgomery.

Carlisle is “six-foot-five, redheaded, pigtailed, gap-and-buck-toothed, nine-fingered, guitar-playing,” and thoroughly beguiling as she launches a musical career in the 1990s, somewhere between grunge and Garth Brooks. She is brought to readers worldwide through Primer Fiction of Sydney, Australia.
