Scott Alarik's new book "Revival: A Folk Music Novel"

The sounds like this will be a must-read for us all! According to Amazon, the novel will be published Sept. 16, 2011. I think we should resurrect the discussion board book club! :-)

There has never been a novel like this, a love story set in the subterranean world of modern folk music. Talented, charismatic songwriter Nathan Warren lost his chance at stardom years ago, and now sees his life as waste and ruin. Kit Palmer is young, beautiful, and explosively gifted, but her dreams are also doomed unless she can keep from falling apart on stage. They travel the Boston folk scene as lovers and artists, through basement clubs and funky jam sessions, rowdy open mikes and sprawling festivals, seeking stardom for one and redemption for the other.

"Some people are born to make great art and others are born to appreciate it. It is a kind of talent in itself, to be an audience, whether you are the spectator in the gallery or you are listening to the voice of the world's greatest soprano. Not everyone can be the artist. There have to be those who witness the art, who love and appreciate what they have been privileged to see." -- Ann Patchett in Bel Canto.

Yes, that will be a good read. I know Scott will be appearing at Stone SOup on October 15th to do a book talk that night along with a Christine Lavin concert.. :P
