A woman with a bizarre interest in pornography.
An Englishman trying to get himself deported.
A disillusioned porn star looking for magic.
These are a few of the people you'll meet in White Russians. Sharp, honest, funny, sad, and surprisingly optimistic, White Russians is an audio adaptation of Christian A. Dumais' autobiographical look at the schizophrenic decade leading into the new millennium through the eyes of those who drank through it. Wonderfully acted and beautifully realized with music and sound effects, this album of seven short stories captures all the madness and glory of a generation lost and out of control with none of the hangover.
Includes seven tracks: ILLUSION OF SWING / MUTED PORN / THE MARIACHI / EMPTY SOCRATES / $24.99 / THIS IS NOT FOR YOU / PAYING THE TAB. Approx. 70 min. Produced by SCREAMING SOUND.

REVIEWS OF SELECT STORIES FROM EMPTY ROOMS LONELY COUNTRIES:
"["Counting Nuns"] is quite engaging . . . you're bound to appreciate the humor and true-to-life inner dialogue Dumais presents." -THE FIX
"Christian A. Dumais's "Counting Nuns" . . . contains a richness of language and imagery that many fictional stories lack. A perfect example of the editors taking a risk publishing an unusual piece that pays off." -THE FUTURE FIRE
""Mad Dogs" by Christian A. Dumais . . . chronicles his night out drinking with some visiting Secret Service and Air Force Two staff, a night which ends with him sitting in the apartment of two Polish lesbians. You'll have to read the essay to find out how he gets there; but what's great about this piece is that it makes real life seem just as strange as the fictional realities depicted in the rest of the magazine." - WHISPERS
