Folksinger Harry Chapin, Writer Flannery O'Connor, and the Legendary Disc Jockey Known as Cousin Brucie: They're All in the Mix of Larry Baker's "A Good Man"
By Rich Fisher
Tulsa, Oklahoma – The folk superstar Harry Chapin, the author Flannery O'Connor, the dying if not bygone world of commercial radio, and hurricane season in northern Florida --- oh, and prophets who claim to be delivering the Word of God. The influences and atmospherics at work (or rather, are they at play?) in the new novel by Larry Baker are many and various. The new book is called "A Good Man" --- and Baker (formerly of Tulsa; now a citizen of Iowa City) appears on today's StudioTulsa to discuss it. He'll be signing copies of the novel tonight (Wednesday the 11th) at Joe Momma's Pizza in downtown Tulsa as part of a "BookSmart Tulsa" event.
