'A remarkable novel, elegant, wise, and beautifully constructed.' Roddy Doyle
The Words of Every Song takes the form of fourteen linked episodes, each centering on a character involved with the music industry. There's the arrogantly hip, twenty-six-year-old A&R man; the rising young singer-songwriter; the established, arena-filling rock star on the verge of a midlife crisis; the type-A female executive with the heavy social calendar; and other recognizable figures.
Set in the sleek offices, high-tech recording studios, and grungy downtown clubs of New York, The Words of Every Song offers an authenticity drawn from Liz Moore's own experience and brings an insider's touch to its depiction of the music industry and its denizens.
Sweet, wistful, artfully arranged: like the best mix tape anyone ever made for you.
