A Skeleton in Gods Closet: A Novel by Paul L. Maier

Hip deep in music,Never Mind Nirvanais a telling inside view that perfectly captures the rhythms and sights of late-nineties Seattle. Peter Buck, guitarist of R.E.M. Pete Tyler is at a crossroads. Eight years ago he dropped out of a seminal Seattle grunge band to try his hand at a more grown-up calling. Now hes thirty-six (almost forty!), a deputy prosecutor (a suit), still hanging out at the same clubs he played ten years ago (the ones that havent shut down), and still dating the same kind of girls (except now they tell him how much their older sisters loved his band). Pete decides its time to get marriedhe just doesnt know to whom. Possibilities include Beth, his first love, who has disappeared; Winter, his on-and-off stripper girl-friend, who has been living the grunge life too long; and Esme, a Sub Pop A&R executive who has some life decisions of her own to make. When a date-rape case lands on his deskthe accused is a local rocker Petes age, the accuser an eighteen-year-old from the scenePete finds his past and present facing him from both sides of the aisle, and he finally has to decide where he stands. Pete Tyler is a cooler version of Everyguy, andNever Mind Nirvanais a hilarious and unexpectedly moving story of a man with one foot stuck in adolescence and the other planted in adulthood. Richly textured with references to classic rock and the music of Seattles legendary alternative rock scene, it is also a fascinating, bittersweet riff on a particularly American zeitgeist.
