Traces Almond's passion for "rawk" from his earliest (and most wretched) rock criticism to his eventual discovery of a music-crazed soul mate and their subsequent production of two little superfans. Along the way, Almond reflects on the delusional power of songs, the awkward mating habits of drooling fanatics, and why Depression Songs actually make us feel so much better.

I once heard Mr. Almond give a reading from this book where he said something so funny (and unrepeatable here) that I still think about it and laugh at least once a week. Do yourself a favor and read this.
