“I swear by sweet Morrissey's quiff that I heard the dead boy speak through the grooves . . . ”

This is your sign.

Technically, yes, this is a book. But as much as it is a book, it is also a DJ set, spinning stories mixed with lyrics and poems—this is a Henry Mackaman experience. Here to remind you that:



So go out and create. Love. Maybe read a little . . . and pass it on.

Henry Mackaman

Henry Mackaman is a writer, a DJ at WSUM Madison, and a guitarist in Phantom Vibration. Henry lived from 1991 to 2013. But he lives now. Because literature is always present tense.

After Henry’s sudden death from bacterial meningitis strain B, he saved five people with his decision to become an organ donor. Henry’s posthumous collaborative memoir, The Music of the Soul Lives On, was a finalist in the Midwest Book Awards and the Indy Awards.
