In his forthcoming novel Outline of My Lover (Soft Skull), Douglas A. Martin fearlessly takes on his turbulent background in working class Georgia, his sister's gutsy interracial marriage, and his own attempts to escape with men. Martin is the author of the collection My Gradual Demise and Honeysuckle and was a contributor to The Haiku Year.
In this MP3Lit.com exclusive, Martin reads an excerpt from the forthcoming novel.
