NEW ARRIVALS: Books - Billy Callahan of The Smogs!

BILL CALLAHAN Letters To Emma Bowlcut BK
*** "After years of writing songs and singing them into the space in front of him, Bill Callahan has written a book of words to go out into that space as well. Letters to Emma Bowlcut is just that, the letters from a boy to a girl. It is in fact one side of the story, and as such is a meditation on solitude. To paraphrase an old adage of the entertainment industry, when fact meets fiction, print the legend. Where comedy meets poetry, print the pros."
