Owens’ New Novel

Last evening at Caribou Coffee in Westminster, Colorado author Freddie Owens read from his recently published novel, Then Like the Blind Man, Orbie’s Story. Believe me, you’ll want to read this one. As the jacket copy says, this is “the story of a feisty wunderkind in the segregated South of the 1950s, and the forces he musy overcome to restore order in his world.” The voice is Faulknerian, the plot part Hamlet, the whole greater than the parts.
