Interviews with Victoria Price, author of The Way of Being Lost: A Road Trip to My Truest Self, and Michael P. Daley, author of Bobby Bluejacket: The Tribe, The Joint, the Tulsa Underworld.

 

Victoria Price, author of Vincent Price: A Daughter's Biography, discusses with John Shuck her latest book, The Way of Being Lost: A Road Trip to My Truest Self

Despite doing “all the right things” to successfully rebuild her life and her finances after a period of deep personal and professional turmoil where she lost almost everything, Victoria Price still felt something profoundly missing from her life. Victoria Price’s inspirational memoir is a heartfelt, candid account of rediscovering her joy and purpose after years of struggle, confusion and hopelessness. 

Michael P. Daley writes about crime and cultural history. His latest book is Bobby Bluejacket: The Tribe, The Joint, The Tulsa Underworld, the extraordinary true story of a man who went from career thief to prison journalist to Eastern Shawnee activist. Daley's previous books include Enjoy The Experience: Homemade Records 1958–1992, which was featured in BBC, NPR, Vice, Book Forum, Rolling Stone, and was called the greatest music book of the year by Los Angeles Magazine. He was founder/Editor of Parallax News, a digital news service for the 2016 U.S. Election. Michael was also a founding member of Boo-Hooray and Sinecure Books. He has worked on productions for Rizzoli, Four Corners, Zero Books, Brookings, and Warner Brothers.
