Christine Weiser’s debut novel follows the fictive all-girl underground rock-group, Broad Street, through the highs and lows of struggling for success in the male-dominated Philadelphia rock scene. “Weiser's now given birth to Broad Street, the terrific Philadelphia rock roman a clef…Weiser, who has already completed a sequel, is a real writer who gets Kit's interior voice down in clean, concise prose.” – Philadelphia Inquirer“As the story unravels, chronicling their ascent from early gigs at seedy clubs to opening slots at the Trocadero, “Broad Street” becomes in many ways a journey toward self-realization and empowerment.” - The Intelligencer“Broad Street reads like a Philly High Fidelity.” – Shawn McBride, author, Green Grass Grace
