Summary
In this follow-up to Love is a Mix Tape, a writer for Rolling Stone, after his wife's death, finds solace in music, which leads him to the strangest places and gives him the courage to start over, move on and rock the mike
Summary
Music lover and Rolling Stone writer Rob Sheffield picks up where he left off at the end of his previous book (Love is a Mix Tape), which ended with the unexpected death of his wife. Having moved from Virginia to NYC, he wanders aimlessly until he discovers karaoke's power to heal his grief. Despite being a terrible singer and unable to play an instrument, Sheffield nevertheless comes to feel at home on stage and within the karaoke community. Each chapter shares its name with a meaningful song title and mixes tales of the karaoke underground with Sheffield's own musings on overcoming loss and falling in love again. - Description by Shauna Griffin
