From the Publisher
"[A] lyrical elegy to lost youth, the death of modern rock, and the search for something authentic....Rich's novel is full of excellent, spare writing....He lingers over beautifully rendered character descriptions, making even the most ancillary figures vital and relevant....Rich's biggest accomplishment is in capturing an era that ended so softly that many are still wondering how it faded away."
"It's beloved by those lucky enough to have heard about it... Very highly recommended."
"This is a terrific "coming of age" story that reminds me of Nick Hornby's work. It's honest and raw and incredibly gripping, and well worth a read."

He works from home where he should buy fewer books or more bookshelves. He lives in Worcester with his wife and daughter.
