ROCK AND ROLL WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE. A Book by and for the Fanatics Among Us.

New York: Random House, (2010). First edition. Hardcover. With a life that's spanned the phonographic era and the digital age, Steve Almond lives in Rawk. Like you, he's secretly longed to live the life of a rock star, complete with insane talent, famous friends, and hotel rooms to be trashed. Also like you, he's content (sort of) to live the life of a rabid fan, one who has converted his unrequited desires into a sort of noble obsession. This book traces Almond's passion from his earliest rock criticism to his eventual discovery of a music-crazed soul mate and their subsequent production of two little superfans. Along the way he reflects on the delusional power of songs, the awkward mating habits of drooling fanatics, and why Depression Songs actually make us feel alive. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket.
