An inveterate multitasker, Fletcher is updating his 2003 R.E.M. biography while writing a memoir about his days on the 1970s London music scene. Boy About Town arrives next summer.

"Like anyone, I complain about being typecast, in my case as a rock biographer, but on a good day, I wake up realizing how lucky I am to be able to make a living out of this. Life could be one hell of a lot worse."

Appearances: 12/8 at 6pm, Oriole9, Woodstock, sponsored by Golden Notebook, reading by Fletcher with Smiths music by Robert Burke Warren and Grasshopper of Mercury Rev. 12/15 at 5pm, The Spotty Dog, Hudson, reading by Fletcher with Smiths music by Terry McCann and Stephen Bluhm.
