My father and I were talking last week and he mention he'd been given a book by the author, Warren Perkins, and he was feeling bad as the school semester was just beginning and he really didn't have time to read it. "It's titled Putrefaction Live," he said. "Might be something you'd be interested in."

"Death Metal and Navajos on the Rez? Yeah, send it to me, I'll read it."

Yet, that isn't really the gist of Putrefaction Live. That maybe the abbreviated two-second elevator pitch a writer is sometimes forced to reduce their work to in order to convey the general idea. But once you dig a little deeper the reader finds Perkins' book deals with very human elements – responsibilities, relationships, fears, and hopes – to name a few. Almost a coming of age story – but that again is too abbreviated/confining a definition.

A well-written debut, with a different take on characters, their interactions, and plot.
