John Van Kirk - Song for Chance

Thursday, September 26, 2013 - 7:00pm

Left Bank Books - Central West End 

John Van Kirk returns to St. Louis with his debut novel, Song for Chance. Middle-aged rock star Jack Voss leaves his home in Carmel, Calif., in July 2004 to visit old friends in New York City, only to discover that his daughter Chance has just died in an apparent suicide pact inside a Hoboken flat. As Jack searches for answers in the wake of her death, he recalls his early days in St. Louis. An invented discography, excerpts of lyrics, and cameos by real-life figures like Nick Cave give a feeling of authenticity to Van Kirk's fictional rock star.
