New York Times columnist and CNN commentator Charles M. Blow’s new memoir, Fire Shut Up in My Bones, is scheduled for release September 23, 2014. The memoir mines the rich but often violent and painful arc of Blow’s childhood growing up in rural Louisiana in the late 20th century, where the legacy of slavery lingered and tears and abuse overshadowed moments of love and happiness. The new responsive web site Haneke Design created for Blow, transports visitors inside his world by sharing vivid excerpts from the book accompanied by the author’s personal writing soundtrack.
“Our goal with this web site was to capture and visually communicate the richness of Charles M. Blow’s memoir, as well as his professional writings and his interactions with his social media community,” said Jody Haneke, president of Haneke Design, a leading interactive design and development firm focused on delivering user-centered solutions for desktop, mobile and tablet devices. “By keeping the pages clean and the focus on his words and music, we sought to create an immersive environment that gives the visitor a more pure, emotional experience with Charles M. Blow’s work – regardless of the device they are using to access the site.”
The WordPress CMS responsive web site features excerpts and praise for Fire Shut Up in My Bones, purchase information, links to Mr. Blow’s New York Times columns, blog calendar, and social media channels, and representation and book tour information.
