"Sixteen Years After His Death . . ." by Alan Prendergast - Westword.com
I saw a Hold Steady concert this weekend and at the end the lead singer Craig Finn made a speech about how they didn't start the band until he was 30 and that good things can happen after your twenties, so don't give up on your dreams. Apparently good things happened after his twenties for this author, John L. Williams, who didn't hit it big until 16 years after he bought the farm, kicked the bucket, and sold every last one of his rhododendrons.
