Song for Three Voices by Curt Johnson. Published in 1984 by Carpenter Press. 274 pages.
In his fourth novel, Johnson chronicles Chicago’s young professional set at the very end of its pre-urban era. Buddies Carl Otto and Gene Sadek are 1950s prototypes, reluctantly working for Michigan Avenue advertising agencies and establish suburban routines at the other end of their commuter train. But their hearts and minds are distracted by other pursuits.
