The official release date for John Prine: In Spite of Himself is only three days away! A couple more nice writeups showed up this week. Chicago-based Carey Farrell reviewed it for Rebeat: “Huffman doesn’t mince words about Prine’s more unfortunate lyrical, production, or even fashion choices, but his admiration and affection for the songwriter shine through on every page.”
Across the Atlantic, Martin Chilton wrote about the book for The Telegraph, compiling a list of “10 things we learn about Prine from the biography.”
Thanks for the coverage, folks! And thanks again to Mike Smith for having me on his WQFS radio show on Tuesday. It was a hoot. Catch me on the airwaves again this coming Tuesday during my St. Patrick’s Day visit appearance on WUNC’s “The State of Things,” broadcast live from the Upstage Cabaret at Triad Stage in downtown Greensboro.
