Here are two links. One for the novel BEDLOE and one for my CD; WHO COULD IMAGINE
Here is a reader review;
If Quentin Tarantino or Jordan Peale are looking for a sure fire movie then this is it! This dystopian tale of the present day situation threatening our country is mind boggling and scary and inventive. Tony Powers has
created a tale of political and emotional turmoil. His characters are both involving and scary and vulnerable. We are in the future and at once in the past (now in 2020). The possibility of love and hope are constantly
keeping us turning the pages. Tony Powers has created language and visuals that send chills through the reader and we must beware the ides of march , in the immediate future. Take a ride and stay vigilant. — Louise Sorel
Here is a review from the pop critic of the San Francisco Chronicle;
From the wispy shadows of the Brill Building comes Tony Powers and a masterpiece album, “Who Could Imagine,” that demands to be heard. I tossed on this CD this morning and I must admit I was stunned. I don’t know where to begin — exquisite production, extraordinary songs, I love the vocals. Way out shit that feels comfortable on the first listen. Wicked point of view.It is not for everyone, but those who get Powers’ spiky, acerbic wit and rich atmospheric music will become instant ardent devotees. He inhabits these songs like a great character actor — think Bruce Dern, Alan Arkin, even Sydney Greenstreet — and makes every note count. “Cartoon” is a stone classic waiting to be discovered. The entire “Who Could Imagine” is a wealth of treasures, but not for the faint of heart. Anyway, big cheers… “Cartoon” is brillant. “How Do Ya” is like a scary Brian Wilson outtake. “This is a Heist” killed me. “Lorraine” was dear. Powers is strong medicine. But I’m thinking some of you will like it a lot.
