A true Austin original, Jesse Sublett has been an influential musician and writer since he formed The Skunks in 1978. He's a published author (print and Epub) of crime fiction and nonfiction, and also a political blogger and ghost writer.

The iPad edition also has an hour+ of audio, with an original blues sound track and selected audio chapters produced by Jesse with Fort Worth blues musician Johnny Reno.
