Terry Kitchen reads from Next Big Thing at JP Library Thurs 6/12

June 12, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Terry Kitchen will be reading from his new novel Next Big Thing at the Jamaica Plain Branch Library, 12 Sedgwick St., Jamaica Plain on Thursday June 12. The reading begins at 6:30 PM and admission is free. Kitchen will also perform songs from the accompanying soundtrack CD. Called “a great debut novel” by the San Francisco Book Review, Next Big Thing is set in the 1980s Boston music scene, when Kitchen’s own band Loose Ties was engaged in a nightly battle for existence and glory. At once disarmingly absurd and heartbreakingly real, Next Big Thing combines the gritty backstage vibe of Roddy Doyle’s The Commitments with the emotional thawing heart of Jay McInerney’s Bright Lights Big City, and every page crackles with the kinetic current of true rock’n’roll.
