Synopsis

A sublime and moving collection of essays by an eloquent master writer, Autumn Rhythm is equal parts candour, courage, humour, and desperation. A true-tongued, almost joyous gallows humour permeates the book, a meditation on what it's like to be on the outer edge of "boomerhood," on the cusp of official seniority what it's like to have been so long associated with a youth movement-rock music-yet to no longer be young. Autumn Rhythm comes from a man whose work has always been music as much as it's been about it, and who now brings his syncopation of word, sound, and sense to the subject of life itself, as lived and lost: a frank, brilliant, and ultimately poetic contemplation of physical decline, the deaths of friends and family, and the confounding, ever-accelerating changes in our culture."A rant in [Meltzer's] finest and funniest manner, an epic vernacular monologue with stylistic roots in nineteenth-century humourists Bill Nye, Artemus Ward, and Mark Twain."
