Overview

IMPORTANT: This version of Hard Listening includes essays, photos and interactive quizzes. For a version with video and audio clips, please search for the Enhanced Edition.

Over 350M books sold. Forty New York Times #1 Bestsellers. One lousy band. Now go behind the scenes to hear their stories firsthand.

In 1992, a cadre of the world’s bestselling authors formed a rock band called the Rock Bottom Remainders. For two decades the band played proudly (and some would say, terribly) to sold out crowds across the country. Now they’re hanging up their guitar picks, drumsticks and leather whips, but not without a look back at twenty years of friendship, love, writing, and the redemptive power of rock ’n’ roll.

Hard Listening is a voyeuristic view into the private lives of your favorite authors, combining essays, fiction, musings, candid email exchanges and conversations, compromising photographs, and interactive quizzes for a groundbreaking ebook experience. See Stephen King, Scott Turow, Amy Tan, Dave and Sam Barry, Roy Blount Jr., Mitch Albom, James McBride, Ridley Pearson, Matt Groening, Greg Iles, and rock legend Roger McGuinn at their most unguarded.

Editorial Reviews

FEARnet - Kevin Quigley
...this book is for everyone: everyone who ever looked at a guitar and yearned to play it; everyone who got up on a karaoke stage and tried to be Bruce Springsteen; everyone who realized they were very good at one thing and wished they were good at other stuff, too; and everyone, everyone, who believes in the soul, the spirit, and the redemptive power of rock and roll. - See more at:
NPR, All Tech Considered - Camila Domonoske
Above all, Hard Listening makes it clear that the members of the Remainders had an absolute blast as a band. They're occasionally crass, often intoxicated, rarely in key and always delighted at the very idea that they're on a stage. It's downright inspiring; even if most of us will never sell a million books, we can probably learn at least two guitar chords. If we have half as much fun as the Remainders, it'll be a victory.
