Editorial Reviews

The Quietus - Karl Smith
"Scott Heim published his novel Mysterious Skin in 1995; it was adapted for a film directed by Gregg Araki and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. While Heim has published two subsequent novels, his latest venture, "The First Time I Heard" series of books, offers--to borrow a phrase--something completely different. The series is a unique collections of impressions and anecdotes, driven by the intimacy and subjectivity of music, written by talented authors, artists and musicians in their own right."
www.slicingupeyeballs.com - Matt Sebastian
"Novelist Scott Heim’s new e-book series “The First Time I Heard” follows a simple concept: ask musicians to expound on their first experiences with their own formative bands. And the results are impressive, with the likes of The Wedding Present’s David Gedge writing about Joy Division and New Order, Pylon’s Vanessa Briscoe Hay weighing in on David Bowie, and Lush’s Miki Berenyi contributing her thoughts on The Smiths."
