Glorious Noise has discovered that the popular serialized story, “Gary Benchley, Rock Star” on The Morning News is to be published as a novel by Plume Books. According to Amazon the 256-page paperback will be available on September 27, 2005 with a list price of $14. And in case anybody was still unsure, it’s listed under the category of “Fiction – General,” not “Biographies & Memoirs.” The author, after all, is not Gary Benchley, the 23-year-old immigrant to New York, but rather…Paul Ford.
So who is this Paul Ford, and what is he doing writing a book about our hero, Gary Benchley?
