Eric Barnes

In Above the Ether (Arcade), a prequel to Eric Barnes's acclaimed novel, The City Where We Once Lived, six sets of characters move through a landscape and a country just beginning to show the signs of cataclysmic change. “While every night the news alternates images of tsunami destruction with the baseball scores, the characters converge on a city where the forces of change have already broken—a city half abandoned, with one part left to be scavenged as the levee system protecting it slowly fails—until, in their vehicles on the highway that runs through it, they witness the approach of what looks to be just one more violent storm.” Memphis based writer, publisher and PBS news talk show host Eric Barnes has roots in Tacoma and he is the author of two previous novels, Shimmer and Something Pretty, Something Beautiful. He is the publisher of newspapers in Memphis, Nashville, Knoxville, and Chattanooga that cover business, politics, the arts, and more.
