Wasted: A Green Noir Mystery

Thursday | October 08, 2015 | 7:00 pm — 9:00 pm

Author John Byrne Barry shares his new novel featuring a murder in the “Recycle Berkeley” yard. In Wasted, timid bookkeeper Brian Hunter investigates the “recycling wars,” finds the body of his friend Doug crushed in an aluminum bale, and hunts down the murderer, all the while trying to win the heart of Barb, Doug’s former lover, now a suspect in his murder. Part mystery, part love triangle, part midlife crisis, and part political satire, Wasted explores rich and resonant themes of reinvention, transition, and discarding that which no longer serves us. John Byrne Barry wrote his first book-length work in fifth grade and has been writing ever since. He is a longtime Ecology Center member and served on the board, and uses his in-depth knowledge of the recycling world as a fun and familiar backdrop to his writing.
