My editor and his whole team at St. Martin’s have a great new Grateful Dead book out and another on the way.
Check out No Simple Highway: A Cultural History of the Grateful Dead, which I was happy to provide a blurb for.
“The How, What, When and Where of the Grateful Dead’s remarkable story have been well chronicled. No Simple Highway brilliantly explores the elusive Why, getting to the very heart of this uniquely American story of music and the power to set both creators and listeners free and establish an enduring community.”
-Alan Paul, New York Times bestselling author of One Way Out: The Inside History of the Allman Brothers Band
And coming soon, which I can not wait to read is Bill Kreutzmann’s Deal: My Three Decades of Drumming, Dreams, and Drugs with the Grateful Dead, written with Benjy Eisen. I’ve been hearing incredible behind-the-scenes stories on this one for months.
Thanks for the post AND the blurb, Alan. I’m also waiting impatiently for the Bill/Benjy book. I heard them speak at the most recent Grateful Dead conference at San Jose State University; that only whet my appetite. (And Marc must be licking his chops.) Gratefully, Peter
