In the vicinity of greatness

CactusMusicIt’s always fun to see the company one’s book is keeping on actual retail book shelves out there in the world. So thanks and appreciation go out to Keith Willis for sending along this shot from an emporium called Cactus Music in Houston, Texas.

Looks like they’ve got “Comin’ Right at Ya” shelved betwixt and between Texas demigod Joe Ely’s 2014 novel “Reverb: An Odyssey” (a book Ely and I talked about a bit when I interviewed him last fall); the “Oddball Texas” guidebook to “Some Really Strange Places” in the Lone Star State — starting with the cover shot of The World’s Largest Cowboy Boots, which are just a few miles from where I grew up in San Antonio; “Bun B’s Rapper Coloring and Activity Book” by Shea Serrano; ex-Del Fuegos guitarist Warren Zanes’ much-acclaimed “Petty: The Biography”; and “I’ve Been Out There: On the Road with Legends of Rock ‘n’ Roll” by Little Richard bandleader Grady Gaines.

Honored to be in the vicinity, y’all.
