Renaissance man

By BILL RODRIGUEZ  |  January 8, 2008

“That is purely my own little esoteric fantasies and daydreams and tangential thoughts, and if four people like it, that’ll be totally amazing,” he says. “In fact, the book came out of literally daydreaming. I read a lot of random stuff, mostly science and history type stuff, and I take incessant margin notes and underlines. I always keep a notebook handy because I’m totally ADD and any time anything is exciting me I immediately start daydreaming about something else, or that’ll suggest a thought that I have to pursue in my own head to the end. And this book is a collection of those margin notes, different tangents of my own mind web.”

He is halfway through writing his next novel, Relative Pitch. The interrelated stories/chapters about a family crisis will each be from a different person’s point of view and have a distinctive literary style, from historical fiction to true crime.

“The grand goal is to do just books, movies and everything in between,” Rose says, not entirely facetiously. “I want to do all of it. That sounds like a good life to me.”
