Featherless Bipeds

ISBN: 978-1-897235-05-8

 There is no distorting the unwavering pull of guys to rock ‘n’ roll bands, and when Dak Sifter builds his band, the Featherless Bipeds, he has every intention of enjoying every wild, raunchy, ear-splitting moment of the ride. But as readers know from Dak’s experiences in Cheeseburger Subversive, life is wrought with perils, and now his band with its lure for girls, the quirky demands of band members, and the mercurial shifting values of youth culture — well, he still loves Zoe Perry doesn't he? And he still wants to do well at university, and still believes in some code of ethics — well, doesn't he?
