Hooks up with Akashic
for 2009 book.
By Blurt Staff
Both NME.Com and the NY
Post are reporting that Ryan Adams — described straight-facedly by the
latter as an “EMO rocker,” har har — are reporting that the songwriter is due
to publish a collection of prose, due sometime in 2009.
The as-yet-untitled book’s to be published by Brooklyn’s respected literary house Akashic Books. According to the NY Post, “’They just signed the contract,’ said our source, ‘and
they plan to release it in 2009.’ A rep for Adams
confirmed the deal, but wouldn’t comment on a working title or when it would
hit the shelves.”
A note on Adams’ website further notes that he is “currently
working on his new album and forthcoming book of poetry” and, according to Adams’ management, “an art show of our artist’s paintings
is also being planned. Stay tuned.”
