Not since the dawn of the music video has pop music undergone a pioneering effort as exciting as this. In LIT RIFFS, America's latest generation of celebrated storytellers joins a list of the most world-renowned rock critics in composing a unique anthology. The anthology consists of fiction, non-fiction, and free-form riffs based on the writer's reaction to the songs that have inspired us all. The book features contributions from Dave Eggers, Jonathan Lethem, Jennifer Belle, Lisa Tucker, Greil Marcus, Rebecca Wells, Nelson George and many more. This is the first book with it's own soundtrack and readers will be able to listen to it, thanks to a CD from Manhattan Records that will be distributed simultaneously. Taking both the written word and the sung lyric to new places, LIT RIFFS is a revolutionary medium from some of today's most influential young talents.
