Combining the eloquence and raw sensuality of Jeanette Winterson with the romantic, renegade spirit of Patti Smith, Further Out Than You Thought is a taut and erotically charged literary debut, set against the chaos of the 1992 L.A. riots, about three people searching for identity and meaning from award-winning poet and indie bookshop co-founder Michaela Carter.
In the Neverland that is Los Angeles, where make-believe seems real, three dreamers find themselves on the verge of transformation. Twenty-five-year-old poet Gwendolyn Griffin works as a stripper to put herself through graduate school. Her perpetually stoned boyfriend Leo dresses in period costume to hawk his music downtown, and seems to be losing his already tenuous grip on reality. And their flamboyant best friend and neighbor, nightclub crooner Count Valiant, is slowly withering away.
When the city explodes in violence after the Rodney King verdict, the chaos becomes a catalyst for change. Valiant is invigorated, Leo plans a new stunt—walking into east L.A., naked, holding a white flag—and Gwen, discovering she is pregnant, is confronted by troubling questions. Can Leo become a good, dependable father? Can she leave the club life behind, or will the city’s spell prove too seductive?
Combining poetry and sensuality with an edgy urban sensibility, Further Out Than You Thought is a celebration of life and a haunting story of love, friendship, and one woman’s quest for redemption.

Rattle and Hum Sports Talk: The Dallas Cowboys are off to their best start under head coach Jason Garrett
Hosted by Bryan Houston with guest Matthew Postins
RattleandHumSports.com host Bryan Houston welcomes Dallas Cowboys writer Matthew Postins to talk about the Cowboys 38-17 victory over the New Orleans Saints Sunday night.
The win gives the Cowboys a two game winning streak, moving them off the .500 line, and a 3-1 record which marks the team's best start to a season while Jason Garrett has been at the helm.
Have the Cowboys committed to being the running team many thought they needed to be this season?
What are the major influences that have lead to the balance on offense?
The Cowboys have overachieved defensively, but are now facing the loss of Morris Claiborne for the season and Bruce Carter indefinately. Will the unit come back to earth or will Rob Miranelli continue to get the best out of the guys he has available?
Is it time to adjust the perception of this team, or is this good start to 2014 still too small of a sample to jump to any conclusions?
Join Bryan and Matthew LIVE tonight at 8:30 PM CDT to discuss!
