Conversation and Book Signing with Colin Gardner and Michael Imperioli

Actor, writer, and Santa Barbara resident, Michael Imperioli, discusses his new book and first novel The Perfume Burned His Eyes with Colin Gardner, Professor of Critical Theory and Integrative Studies at UCSB. Called by Joyce Carol Oates “a vividly imagined and compelling story,” this sympathetic coming of age narrative brings together fathers, sons, Lou Reed, first love, and the strange and sometime agony of being a teenager.
