So Many Things to Say examines the relationships among a group of young people in Austin, Texas in the early 1980s. In those days the Lone Star States capital city hummed with creative energy. At the University of Texas, Michael Dell cobbled together computers in his dormitory room. An earnest young Paul Begala ran for student body president, losing a close race to a giant purple cartoon character called Hank the Hallucination. Stevie Ray Vaughan played nightly in the clubs downtown and Louis Black and Nick Barbaro published the first thin issues of their alternative-press biweekly, the Austin Chronicle. This is the backdrop for So Many Things to Say. While they deal with the pressures of college, sexuality, and a dismally unsuccessful bout of radical politics, Duncan McCaffrey, Gilbert Ochoa, and their more or less destitute friends fight and laugh and fall just a little in love. A funny, wistful story about growing up and reaching out, So Many Things to Say is for anyone who's ever felt, in the words of Bruce Springsteen, "so weak I just wanna explode." Note: As of 10/14/05, a portion of all royalties on sales of So Many Things to Say will go to Austin's Save Our Springs Alliance, which works to preserve the clean water of Barton Springs and the Edwards Aquifer.
