Norb's writing shack.

This month's Feature: Norb Blei

Norb Blei is a writer and poet who operates out of a backwoods shack in Door County, Wisconsin (see above photo). Despite his rural location, Mr. Blei's work can be decidedly urban in its focus. Ranging from witty and literate, to gritty and real, we are sure you will enjoy the pieces presented here.

The following audio selections are taken from a reading given by Mr. Blei at the Buzz Cafe in Oak Park, Illinois.
