ABOUT HEADZ THE NOVEL

By J.J. Colagrande

john-cov-lg2A diverse cast of ten characters, living in New York, Miami, and San Francisco, make up the novel. In Headz, everyone comes together at a music festival in Chicago, where paths converge for a summer event none of the characters will soon forget, and a show few will get to see.

The book and website, although a work of fiction, depict a wonderful world that over generations has been very real to hundreds of thousands of people. During the five years of composing and revising Headz, almost 60,000 words have been deleted. Many anecdotes did not fit into the narrative arc of the compact and crowded novel, but still feel relevant and entertaining. As a result, we created this website, dedicated to 58 deleted scenes, bonus features, and first person monologues. This is a story about music festivals, coming-of-age, love, and rebellion.

In addition, new scenes are now being released on this website, starting with a 15-anecdote short story; in essence the beginning of a sequel to the novel.

Like Lester Bangs says in the epigraph of Headz the novel: although the Flame may flicker low and all but gutter in these juiceless times, the Party goes on forever….
