Collected here are the rich, poignant stories that established Camden Joys reputation as one of the countrys most original music writers (Ira Glass, NPR). Some are tales of high adventure in which disappeared songs or bands appear as buried treasure. Some speak of fleeting passions, of love squandered and identities gone missing. Some originally surfaced in the form of polemical tracts, or as ephemera pasted on the streets of New York City. Others existed only as rumors, beyond the reach of any reader. Each, until now, has been lost. Camden Joy is sort of the Irvine Welsh of American rock, setting music to narrative with a knowingness and grace that elucidates what it means to be a rock star and / or fan more persuasively than any other contemporary novelist--from the preface by Dennis Cooper.
