FOR YOUR GRAMMY CONSIDERATION
UNFAITHFUL MUSIC & DISAPPEARING INK
Narrated by Elvis Costello
Nominated for Best Spoken Word Album at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards. If you haven’t had a chance to take a listen yet, check out a sample on Soundcloud:
This memoir, written entirely by Elvis himself, offers his unique view of his unlikely and sometimes comical rise to international success, with diversions through the previously undocumented emotional foundations of some of his best-known songs and the hits of tomorrow.
UNFAITHFUL MUSIC & DISAPPEARING INK provides listeners with a master’s catalogue of a lifetime of great music. He takes readers behind the scenes of Top of the Pops and Saturday Night Live, and his own show, Spectacle, on which he hosted artists such as Lou Reed, Elton John, Levon Helm, Jesse Winchester, Bruce Springsteen, and President Bill Clinton.
“While the book is certainly worth of a leisurely, cover-to-cover dive, an even more surprising treat is the companion audiobook, in which the author himself acts out many of his most legendary incidents, delivering spot-on impressions of Dylan and many others, and often sending up himself in the process”
– Rolling Stone
“Costello’s reading is as expressive, heartfelt and articulate as the text itself, funny, sincere and sad by turns…For fans of the author and of thoughtful musical biographies. A fascinating, rich, and evocative memoir told with warmth, intelligence, and wit and filled with memorable descriptions and observations”
– Library Journal
