Rock Lit Summer

I've been picking my way through a few great rock titles this summer, and I'll be reviewing them all in the coming weeks. The first review, of See a Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody by Bob Mould, will see the light at HTMLGIANT in July. I was a big Husker fan as a youngster and had plenty to say about Mould's take on the band.

I also just finished the review of the rock novel Wonderland by Stacey D'Erasmo, and I hope to have a landing place for it soon.

I'm currently reading another rock novel, The Sound of Songs Across the Water by Rob Yardumian, and will get to work on a review of it next week.

Then I can finally get into Midnight, Jesus & Me, a memoir by fellow rock freak JM Blaine. I'll write up a review for it in August.

Finally, I'll be updating my Top 20 Rock Novels of All Time in the fall. This update becomes necessary after reading the two rock novels above, and I may re-read one that made the list last year but that many felt I gave short shrift. Look for the updated list in September.

You can wait for my take on these books, but it would be great if you read and wanted to discuss them as well. You can really gone wrong with any of them.

Yours in laying down the law,
