The first novel in a four part series, AcaPolitics explores the high-stakes and hilarious world that is contemporary college a cappella (Aftermath Press, 2011). Stephen Harrison, a twenty-four year old graduate of Washington University in St. Louis, masterfully brings to life the singing community he experienced firsthand at his alma mater.
When Brighton University’s Student Government announces that it will be cutting one of the a cappella groups from the activities budget, the competitive singers attempt to sabotage the other ensembles and establish theirs as the best group on campus. Joining the fray are the singing fraternity “bros” in the Gobfellas; the lovably wholesome Chorderoys; the “sisters in song” in the Notabelles; the geeky nice guys in the Dinos; and “a cappella with chutzpah!” from La*chaim.
While at Washington University, Harrison was a Howard Nemerov Writing Scholar and the leader of his co-ed a cappella group, After Dark. This November, Harrison will be writing about the international a cappella phenomenon for The Huffington Post.
With the explosive popularity of Glee and The Sing-Off, Harrison’s AcaPolitics stands poised to entertain mainstream audiences and music buffs alike.
Official Release November 11, 2011 from Aftermath Press. Available on Amazon in print and Kindle editions. Visit http://www.AcaPolitics.com for details.
