(LISTENER WARNING: This segment contains non-graphic but also non-judgemental conversation about homosexual behavior; plus, Sam isn't very big on the group of publishers who exercised their right to not publish content they disagreed with.)

"Tommy Crow" is Sam Slovick's contribution to the second edition of Slake, LA's new literary quarterly. It's about two outsider teenage Midwestern boys who turn to each other, and it contains a sex/love scene that led to the magazine being published in Korea instead of the Bible Belt.

Listen here to Off-Ramp's John Rabe asking Slovick highly personal questions about the story, and CLICK THROUGH for a link to Slovick's work on Pavement.
