Disappointed by the long process of filmmaking, one-time screenwriter I.M. Pembroke turned to novels to express his story-telling urge. As he mulled about what to write next while sitting in a heavy metal bar in Brooklyn, a helpful barmaid offered him some sage advice: “Since you don’t have to write for others, write the wildest, craziest, sexiest thing you can think of!” Thus CLASS WAR BABY! was born, and drawing upon Bertolt Brecht’s theories of epic theater, he concocted a narrative fit for today’s issues and obsessions, applying them to three beautiful rightwing terrorist strippers—Lydia, Patty and 2Lip.
While not compulsively writing, Pembroke spends his days plotting his escape from New York City, where he has spent most of his life. Travels to the distant Rockies beckon him, perhaps to follow in the peripatetic footsteps of Patty, his very own literary creation.
