Rob Yardumian tells about the book:

At its heart, the book is about two friends (and ex-bandmates) who reunite to try to record an album together over the summer of 1995 in Los Angeles. It’s a story about the mysteries of melody, the lessons of lust, the ghosts we can’t outrun. It’s about the enduring sting of rock and roll, and the siren scent of a lover’s skin. It’s about friendship and loyalty, and how the bonds of both can stretch and snap under pressure. It’s about what might happen when a dream comes true.

And it has a soundtrack—ten songs I wrote in conjunction with the novel, professionally recorded and produced here in Portland. So not only does the music of the novel live in my characters on the page, it lives in real life as well.
