SEAN BEAUDOIN is the author of three novels (Going Nowhere Faster, Fade to Blue, and You Killed Wesley Payne, which drops on February 1) and the owner of one of the more mispronounced surnames in the TNB annals (we think it’s either BODE-win or bo-DWIN).
The dude knows his music. Like, he once deejayed a party using only music by bands and artists that start with the letter “A” (too bad for you, ZZ Top). And he knows who Captain Beefheart is (or was). And he has very strong opinions about what makes a lousy band name.
He also knows his politics — certainly no one can accuse him of claiming he can see a foreign nation from his front porch. Not even Dick Armey, or some Internet troll. Heck, he once edited a zine called Zapruder Head Snap. In fact, he can pretty much solve every last crisis facing our great nation.
And then there’s his memoir pieces, the trip to La Selva and the relationship with the Dworkin-reading feminist, both ill-fated.
Also, I’m pretty sure he knows who killed Wesley Payne.
