This is Chuck Klosterman's third book. It's about a unique writing assignment for Spin magazine that has him driving across the United States visiting historical rock sites.

So if you are a rock n' roll historian, then you just might like this book.

But the premise for the book, soon becomes interesting trivia filler for Klosterman's chaotic love life story that consists of three women: Diane, Lenore, and Quincy. One women he loves, but doesn't love him back. The other loves him, but he won't fully commit to her due to distance (or other reasons). And the third, he will love forever (no matter what).

So if you are a hopeless romantic, then just might like this book.

If you want to try out Chuck Klosterman for the first time, I'd go with Fargo Rock City or Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs. If you are a Klosterman fan, then I definitely recommend this book.

And if you are a rock n' roll historian and a hopeless romantic combined, then you just might love this book.
