About this deal

Linda Troeller is an award-winning photographer acclaimed for her exhibitions about living at the legendary Hotel Chelsea. Publication dates are subject to change (although this is an extremely uncommon occurrence overall). Stripe is known for her imaginative novel/biography of Andrea Dunbar, Black Teeth and a Brilliant Smile, and this book, too, though it reads pretty close to the truth, emphasises that “fact has been used to create fiction” and that people remember events differently.

His work has appeared in Creem, Rolling Stone, New York Post, NME, Melody Maker, National Enquirer et al.

But this is also an effect of the searing honesty and piercing self-analysis which is a hallmark of “Ten Thousand Apologies”. This is the story of a band that’s always on the brink: of stardom, of madness, of brilliance, of disgrace. There is an amusing account of a bunch of ill-prepared junkies, setting out on the worst hike in history that nearly killed off the band’s main members, which would have been a suitably pathetic way to exit rock and roll.stars instead of 5 because I’m not sure how much I liked the switching back and forth between first and third person. Wasn’t hugely keen on some of the formal choices which disjointed the narrative quite a bit, also felt time was eschewed in a confusing, not too impressive way, but felt that the whole thing was authentic in a way that so few books are. We were excitedly filling him in when some kind of heinous commotion could be heard unfolding in the adjacent tent, Mark E.
