Mid-life Confidential book. This is the story of The Rock Bottom Remainders, a band made up of a dozen or so best selling authors including Stephen King, Dave Barry, Amy Tan, Greil Marcus, and many others.
The effect of reading this book is like walking into a loud messy party after everyone else got there. All of these hugely successful writers talk about growing up as the uncool kid for whom this should never have been in the cards and how it was a transformative experience as they bumble through their version of the rock and roll life. There are many laugh out loud passages. There are also some poignant moments-Dorris's son is accidentally killed. Marsh's beloved stepdaughter dies after a valiant struggle against cancer.

Dave Marsh is one of rocks best-known critics. King's first novel would never have been published if not for his wife. She removed the first few chapters from the garbage after King had thrown them away in frustration. That book, Carrie, was about a girl with telekinetic powers who is tormented by bullies at school.

The book is funny-not as funny as their playing apparently was, but funny. They gave it a try, and being book people, they ended up with a book. They liked it so much they decided to take their show on the road. Band members and assorted groupies and hangers-on included Dave Barry, Roy Blount, Matt Groening, and some real musicians like Al Kooper. The book is funny-not as funny as their playing apparently was, but funny.
Posted By: Mrdudley - April 4th, 2010 7:52:58 am EDT I'm always looking for a good book, so when I read about the Remainders in the First Foreword of "On Writing," I decided to read something by each author in the band. It's been a rewarding reading experience.
