Reviews
"Here is both a personal history and a cultural history. For years, Dean Wareham has made music of beguiling intimacy that draws you into mysteries, dreams and romances. Now he has written a captivating book that does the same." -- Joe Levy, Executive Editor, "Rolling Stone" "Dean Wareham has already given the world some of the greatest music of the last many years, and now he offers us this-part blueprint of the creative process, part punk rock field guide, part map of America, part dreamscape of despair, part song." -Nick Flynn, author of "Another Bullshit Night in Suck City" "I have always been a fan of Dean Wareham and have worked with him and Luna many times. I love reading the thoughts of frontmen. I think it's a great read for the fan of adventure." - Lou Reed
