Two top literary magazines have just published excerpts from my novel-in-progress THE FATHER WHO NEVER YELLED. One excerpt (UV-30 ) is realistic, robust and sad, the other (Night Swim is surrealistic, sensual and mysterious. Read in tandem, they should give you a solid feel for the new book.


Le Salon Litteraire du Peuple pour le Peuple, one of LTs most active groups, is doing a month-long interview with me regarding my new novel The Red Album of Asbury Park Remixed. The interview starts February 1. The group’s url is and the topic’s title is Alex Austin: Feb. '10s featured real-life underappreciated author. (Whether I will be more or less underappreciated after getting slammed with questions for a month is uncertain, but it should make for some lively reading). It’s not expected that everyone who asks a questions will have read the book. I’m underappreciated, after all. The book is available in print (make sure it’s the “Remixed” version) and if you feel compelled to read it but can’t afford it, send me an e-mail at and I’ll send you a free pdf.

I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm currently out of physical copies). If you're interested, send me your e-mail address (mine is, and I'll send you the e-book. Here's a link to a summary (and a sample chapter) in case you'd like to read more about the book before you commit:
