The Deification – a review
I’ve never been a teenage boy, but on page one of ‘The Deification’ I was Eddie Iturbi. I smelled the rain and the wet tarmac at that gas station. I counted out change for a gallon of gas while my stomach growled for a hamburger. I wanted to get away in a stolen car, wanted to escape to San Francisco, wanted to be a writer. It takes pain and sacrifice, and if you’re heavy into the myth base, it’s going to take blood. In Eddie’s case, he’s ready to give up friends, family and pride. He’s ready to shed blood to be a writer. He’s not ready for everything though. Not the strict Buzzard Cult, the jealous Wanda, not the trip to Kerouac’s grave where he’s buried alive and reborn as a living god. In The Deification, Eddie Iturbi changes a from southern California valley boy, to a student of hard knocks, to a writer. Think you’ve got what it takes to be a writer? Are you sure? Read The Deification and ask yourself, got what it takes? Not many of us are willing to sacrifice what Eddie Iturbi did.
I just wrapped up a fun Q and A on Goodreads. Readers dropped some good questions, Thanks to all of the visitors and thanks for taking the time visit the event. If you’re interested in seeing the whole thing, drop me a note.
This page looks great–written in blood-laden pen.
Hello Marianne: thanks for the note. love to hear from you.
nice work on the interview
the family stuff was right on
Valley Boy is my story. It’s the story of every kid who came out of the Central Valley of California with a hunger to find out what life was like beyond scratching out a living in quiet despair and living in a seething rage.

Thanks Jack, for the nod. I appreciate it.
Hey Jack – just watched your interview with Mindy on Literary Liaisons – well done sir. Great insights, Informative and entertaining. I too wish I could be “wiser” younger 🙂 Be well.
Hi — Thanks for the invitation. I’m signed up. I will see you in person one of these days! Ran into Elena Hartwell at Serenity Horse Rescue’s auction a few weeks ago. Take care and good luck with all your efforts. Trust the process, huh? ~ Kathleen

Dear Jack, this is the journey, then and now
All of us seeking relief …and you take us on another journey
I am free to write again. Are you guiding writing circles? I want to join if possible.
Nice. I’m continuing to read. Making little notes. I’m still trying to figure out how my own vision fits with my writing. Years ago I took a class from David Shields at UW. Interestingly, I got my short story, “Medio Street,” from that class and it eventually turned into a novel. His vision, as I perceived it, and mine couldn’t have been more different. Close reading Citadel makes me feel the same way about your vision, Jack, but I’m a firm believer that the way we grow is to expose ourselves to thoughts that are much different from our own. Your book is bringing up a lot of interesting thoughts.
Here is a trailer for my recently-released short story collection. It’s only two minutes. I like it a lot and I think it reflects a bit of my vision: YouTube – Where Do Stories Come From? By Kathleen Glassburn
Have a good weekend.
