New York author Teddy Wayne talks about his novel 'The Love Song Of Jonny Valentine.' Wayne is coming to Chattanooga March 21st for the Meacham Writers' Workshop.
Teddy Wayne's novel The Love Song Of Jonny Valentine is a deft mix of pop-culture criticism and slick literary craft. Jonny, the protagonist/narrator, is a tween singer similar to Justin Bieber, and he's savvy enough to understand he exists solely as a marketing tool.
