Keeping busy these days… The trade paperback edition of Lean on Pete recently came out in the UK (Faber) and Willy recorded a special story to accompany it. Titled A Motorcylcle for A Horse, the short story was written as a companion piece to Lean on Pete and features characters from the novel: Charley Thompson, Lonnie Dixon, and Lean on Pete. The recording includes music by Richmond Fontaine members and, of course, reading by Willy. You can download it here.
If you haven’t already done so, please vote for Willy and Lean on Pete for the Oregon Book Awards Peoples Choice Award, to be announced April 25. Voting ends on the 18th. Your support is most appreciated!
