I have some very good friends out there, friends who love to alert me to any Rock Fiction they come across.

Or, in the case of this one, Rock non-Fiction.

Now, I could write posts coveting Rock non-Fiction until my fingers fall off. There’s a ton of it out there, and more being released every day. So why am I taking the time to tell you about this one, when there’s more Rock Fiction to covet?

Well, because it’s different. It’s a memoir, for one. Written by a rock critic, one of my favorite types of people. It’s about a man trying to put his life back together after it’s been shattered, and it’s about

finding the courage to move on, clearing your throat, and letting it rip. It’s a story about navigating your way through adult romance. And it’s a story about how songs get tangled up in our deepest emotions, evoking memories of the past while inspiring hope for the future.

That last sentence. Right there. It says it all.

I totally gotta read this one.
