Darby Precariat lives in the icy shadow of a freeway overpass in a withering ski town in the Colorado Rockies. He works graveyards as a security guard and suspects he may hold the world record for most consecutive days survived without speaking to another human being. He cites the sound of the before mentioned freeway at 4 a.m., old school Muzac, Noam Chomsky’s chronic hoarseness, and the poetry of Richard Cronshey (even though Richard Cronshey won’t friend him on Facebook- is he even on there?) as important influences. He sees living and writing as two forms of the same ascetic exercise which is learning to carry with style the weight of consciousness in an indiscriminately affectionate universe. He is coming soon to a town near you.

Peter Golub lived his first three years inside a 4 by 4 crib in a communal apartment, where crying simply wasn’t allowed. After beating him with a wooden spoon, they would put these old pilot headphones over his head and blast Mahler’s First Symphony. His mother says she could put on the First Symphony and let it play all day and Peter would sit there rocking back and forth like Dustin Hoffman in Rain Main. To this day, whenever he hears it, he wants to silently cry into his wee little hanky.
