035- Soap Opera, by Alan Nelson, 1953
"Wherein a man causes mayhem across San Francisco, just because"
Ruiz Tremello & Marguerite are in Neo Tokyo, Siberia, discussing Alan Nelson's 1953 short story, "Soap Opera". Marguerite LOVED this one, in a certain way, kind of.
Alan Nelson is the author of only 8 short stories in his entire career, and after enjoying this one, we want to read the other 7. We haven't been able to find out much about him, other than the fact that he was born in New Mexico in 1911, lived in Oakland during the 40's and worked for the "state employment agency" as an "interviewer".
If you know anything more about him, or would like to send us books containing his stories, we are the proud owners of an email address, and we can't email you first, because we don't know who you are.
