Could Chuck?

Chuck Klosterman swung through Boston last week, doing a talk at the Hard Rock Cafe that was hardly publicized. But, perhaps I’m just not looking in the right places.  I did a little piece for Bostonist on what I might have heard had I attended the event; check it out here. For most folks, Kl[...]
