Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I can¿t turn it off, turn it down, wash it off, or get it out of my head. This book has really gotten to me. Read 'Glimpses' if you love the Beatles or the Yardbirds or Hendrix or the Beach Boys (especially the Beach Boys) or the Doors or Dylan or Janis or Van Morrison or any of the great musical pioneers of that era, or any of the great musical pioneers of any era, anywhere. Read it if you are drawn to the unstable edges of human experience where reality and desire intersect. ¿Glimpses¿ is like nothing I¿ve ever read before--simple, beautiful, powerful, moving, important, unpretentious, full of hope and life, yet unafraid of the terrible costs of growth and love and change. Why aren't there more reviews here? Why don't more people know about this amazing, World Fantasy Award-winning book? Grab a copy and make the world a better place.
If you love music legends, rock, artistry, fantasy, or simply well-spun fiction, then don't deprive yourself of this book. GLIMPSES will give you a true glimpse into the mind of a writer well worth remembering, and one you'll be eager to tell your friends about. This book is a mind-trip and heart-trip all in one.
