Randi Black is a recent alum of the graduate writing program at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. With three novels under her belt, she will soon enter library school at Dominican University. The original draft of Randi Black’s first novel, Miss World, was way too long – we’re talking over 500 pages long – but it spawned a 1990s trilogy of novels drenched in the messy dregs of punk rock.
