Inspired by works like WIDE SARGASSO SEA and ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD, I’ve begun a story retelling the film SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER from the perspective of a minor character: Bobby C, the skinny boy with big hair who wears platform shoes, gets his girlfriend pregnant, and falls off the Verrazano Bridge. The story is told in vignettes, all titled from the film’s soundtrack. The good folks at Virginia Tech’s TOAD THE JOURNAL have just published a few excerpts from this work-in-progress. Most grateful to them for their belief in the piece at this early stage.
The story is called “Got the Wings of Heaven on my Shoes.” Click here: http://toadthejournal.com/issue-22/joseph-salvatore/
