Now he writes at his place on the Roaring Fork and goes to Aspen for the music and fresh material.
Ducker has written numerous novels; the last was much darker than this bright book, whose back cover shows the cake completely devoured as most readers will do with Dizzying Heights in one sitting. One friend told him that for such a funny book, it had a sad message. But Ducker points out that while the backdrop is sad, this books moral is not. I think its message is that we should enjoy ourselves, he says. And you will, when you hear Ducker read from Dizzying Heights at 7:30 p.m. tonight at the LoDo Tattered Cover, 1628 16th Street.
