Don’t get me wrong, we’re proud of how “Comin’ Right At Ya” turned out. Nevertheless, the undisputed highlight of this fall’s music offerings from University of Texas Press is a different book, “Don’t Suck, Don’t Die: Giving Up Vic Chesnutt” by the wonderful author/musician Kristin Hersh — an American Music Series title that is seriously beyond great. And the cool thing about publishing a book by a working musician like Kristin is how neatly bookstore appearances can fit into a tour itinerary. To wit, below is her reading/show schedule for the month of October, when “Don’t Suck, Don’t Die” arrives in bookstores.
I hope a city near you is on the itinerary. And even if it’s not, please check out this book.
