Neil Young's second book "Special Deluxe: A Memoir of Life & Cars" will be published on October 14, 2014.
And -- thanks to the generous support of Blue Rider Press -- we're pleased to be able to offer a free copy of the book "Special Deluxe: A Memoir of Life & Cars" to a Thrasher's Wheat reader. Details follow below.
We just received a review copy last week and are working our way through Neil's memoir. The book, a followup to 2012's Waging Heavy Peace: A Hippie Dream, had various working titles such as "Cars and Dogs" and "Cars I Have Known" is yet another astonishing insight into the creative mind of Neil Young.
The book also features the artwork of Neil Young himself.
From book jacket:
Young has fashioned a second work of extraordinary reminiscences about his Canadian boyhood, his musical influences, his family, the rock ’n’ roll life, and one of his deepest, most ebullient passions: cars. Through the framework of the many vehicles he’s collected and driven, Young explores his love for the well-crafted vintage automobile,and examines his newfound awareness of his hobby’s negative environmental impact. With his ferocious devotion to clean energy, he recounts the saga of Lincvolt, his specially modified electric car, and his efforts to demonstrate to lawmakers and consumers how viable non-gas-guzzling vehicles truly can be.
Special Deluxe captures Young’s singular lyrical, almost musical, voice. Witty, eclectic, and wonderfully candid, Special Deluxe is an unforgettable amalgam of memories, artwork, and political ponderings from one of the most genuine and enigmatic artists of our time.
