Bop-bap-a-loopa-a-bop-bam-boom. You haven't rocked ALL the way around the clock until you've read this collection of rock and roll poetry by exceptional writers from across the nation. Get all shook up with Elvis or howl with Dylan. Trot down Memory Lane through vignettes of musicians living the good life or relive the heartbreak of rockers who left us too young and too soon. The music is in the words and in the memories that are crafted by these many artists, crafted in tones of reverence, of playfulness, and, mainly, of love for American rock and roll. This is a one-of-a-kind collection that should be part of everyone's library. It also makes a terrific collection for use in the classroom.
