Product description

Review

"One of the best books ever written by a contemporary artist."--Pete Townshend "A great big grin of a book, winced out through gritted teeth."--"Kirkus Reviews""How do you think it felt finding out that one of my favorite rock stars in history is also a better, funnier, and more touching writer than I am after 10 years at "Time" magazine?"--Joel Stein "Readers will just be plain enraptured by the story of a gifted man barely surviving tragedy with only his talent to guide him."--Robert Leleux, author of "The Memoirs of a Beautiful Boy""You trust every word coming off the tips of Everett's fingers. His book is a subtle, touching thing."--"Sunday Times (UK)""I kept telling myself, "This guy is the next Kurt Vonnegut!" "Things the Grandchildren Should Know" shares less with a rock memoir than it does with the likes of" The Corrections", " Middlesex", and" The Ice Storm". It's unexpectedly uplifting."--"The Word""Crackling with a staccato rage, he comes clean about bad times, good times and finally getting to be a grown-up on his own terms."--"The Times (UK)""His unique sensibility is as apparent in his prose as in his music. Even those unfamiliar with, or indifferent to, Everett's work will still vicariously enjoy meeting him."--"The Independent (UK)"
