As NewSouth author John Pritchard wraps up writing The Yazoo Blues, the sequel to his 2005 hit Junior Ray (named one of Barnes & Noble’s 2005 Sensational Debuts), he was interrupted the other day by news of the federal closing of the Platinum Plus club that serves as the inspiration for the Magic Pussy Cabaret & Club in The Yazoo Blues.

Writes Pritchard, “Even though the long—but mostly elastic—arm of the local, and also that of the federal, constabulary—with tarnished badges and secret shame in their blue-serge hearts and also, I am sure, with a gnawing ache in their guilty but plain-clothes souls, has locked tight the doors of this almost mythical refuge, Junior Ray expresses optimism in the last few lines of The Yazoo Blues, where he declares that he is confident that ‘Sex and the Magic Pussy will outlast the law.'”

To read an excerpt from Junior Ray’s adventures inside The Magic Pussy in The Yazoo Blues, visit the Yazoo Blues book page.

The Yazoo Blues is forthcoming from NewSouth Books in fall 2008. Junior Ray, is available directly from NewSouth Books, at Amazon.com, or from your local book retailer.
