NYT chimes in on Wesley Stace

Back on February 15th, we blogged about Wesley Stace (aka recording artist John Wesley Harding) and his new book, Charles Jessold, Considered as a Murderer, as well as his upcoming event at Book Passage in Corte Madera. In that blog, we mentioned that Wesley Stace is one of "the most literary musicians working today."

That opinion, it seems, is shared by the New York Times, who yesterday profiled the multi-talented author and musician. Their article, "Whodunit Most Musical by a Musician Most Literary," is a revealing and detailed portrait of the Cambridge graduate and acclaimed folk-rocker.

The New York Times thinks Stace improbably talented. We think him remarkably talented. Come find out for yourself when this celebrated author-musician discusses his murder mystery novel about classical music, Charles Jessold, Considered as a Murderer (Picador, $15.00), at Book Passage on Sunday, February 27th at 2 pm. A splendid time is guaranteed for all. That afternoon, Mr. Stace is topping the bill. blogged by thomas gladysz
