Here's all those amazing Greil Marcus interviews in one place. This would be actually be a great way to begin reading our most estimable critic, and Joe Bonomo has done a superb job of putting it all together. Like reading interviews with Brian Eno or Joe Strummer, Greil Marcus always teaches and inspires. Love how contemporaneous riffing pops with timelessly sharp critical thinking in these conversations. Of course, after this, you have a bevy of absolute masterpieces to check out. Mr. Marcus just put out another one as well, The History of Rock 'n' Roll in Ten Songs, which may be his best book yet.

Having been a huge fan of Greil Marcus' for quite some time, I had been curious to know more about the man behind the rock writing. "Conversations with Greil Marcus" gave me excellent insight into the man and his influences. A very thorough and well-paced book, I can recommend it without hesitation for anyone with an interest in great rock writing or simply great rock and roll. Any well-read music fan will find this book interesting and informative, as well as a pleasure to read.
