Literary Nonfiction. Memoir. Allen Callaci is a librarian, rock and roll singer, and heart transplant recipient. HEART LIKE A STARFISH is his account of that death-defying journey and the healing that follows for both himself and those around him. With illustrations by the author and beautiful cover art by Amy Maloof, this wonderfully chaotic tale is told in a non-linear style that manages to convey the frenetic events and emotions while still embracing the strength and care and security all around. A portion of the proceeds of the book will be donated to Cedars-Sinai Heart Research Institute where the procedure was performed.
Allen Callaci is the lead singer for the band Refrigerator, an adjunct professor, and a librarian whose work has appeared in MungBeing, the Poly Post, The Huffington Post, BK Nation, Cinefantastique, Crump Comics and various zines in the 90s. He lives in Southern California and is the proud co-founder of the Rancho Cucamonga Public Library's Star Wars Day.Author City: UPLAND, CA USA
