Travis Naught describes himself as "a quadriplegic wheelchair user" and "a free thinker." He's also an author and poet, and he'll be reading from his new novel, "Joyride," at 7 tonight at Auntie's Bookstore.
Sharma Shields, author of "The Sasquatch Hunter's Almanac," wrote that " 'Joyride' is a novel of collisions — between vehicles, yes, but even more powerfully between people. Buckle in for a searing, brutal, sexy read."
And Shann Ray, author of "American Copper," added this: "Travis Naught captures the culture of beauty and the culture of despair with the eye of a hawk skirting the nimbus ofthe sun. At just the right moments, his eye draws us down and into thedrama of our collective existence, breaking us in two, giving us the sights,sounds, and tastes of love … and in the end, devastating us both by the reality of what remains and the haunting echo of what we've lost. His prose is clean, his novel absorbing. Joyride is a bright engine of horsepower, chrome, and speed."
