Been there...
City on Fire by Garth Risk Hallberg
“THERE WAS A PERIOD just after the inevitability of ruin hove into view and just before it smashed into the hull of your life that was the closest to pure freedom anybody ever got. The fateful decisions had all been made by some remote historical figure, a you who no longer existed. Nor would the you who’d eventually have to live them down resemble in any but the most general sense the you you were today.”
Garth Risk Hallberg

Hey!
City on Fire by Garth Risk Hallberg
“It seemed impossible that he’d chosen to live here, at a latitude where spring was a semantic variation on winter, in a grid whose rigid geometry only a Greek or a builder of prisons could love, in a city that made its own gravy when it rained.”

“I realize it’s frowned on to choose a mate based on something superficial like the music they love. But superficiality has been good to me. In the animal kingdom, Renée and I would have recognized each other’s scents; for us, it was a matter of having the same favorite Meat Puppets album. Music was a physical bond between us, and the fact that she still owned her childhood 45 of Andy Gibb’s “I Just Want to Be Your Everything” was tantamount to an arranged marriage. The idea that we might not belong together never really crossed my mind.”

“Which is to say: a city boy, definitively. He knew exactly which spot on which subway platform corresponded with which staircase on which other platform.”
Garth Risk Hallberg, City on Fire

Garth Risk Hallberg
“Had music not delivered Richard, too, on more than one occasion, from a life he’d believed himself trapped in? The tempos had changed, but that almost didn’t matter. The point, now as then, was to tune in to something bigger than yourself, and to feel around you others who felt as you did.”
Garth Risk Hallberg, City on Fire

Rob Sheffield
“Walter Benjamin, in his prescient 1923 essay “One Way Street,” said a book was an outdated means of communication between two boxes of index cards. One professor goes through books, looking for tasty bits he can copy onto index cards. Then he types his index cards up into a book, so other professors can go through it and copy tasty bits onto their own index cards. Benjamin’s joke was: Why not just sell the index cards? I guess that’s why we trade mix tapes. We music fans love our classic albums, our seamless masterpieces, our Blonde on Blondes and our Talking Books. But we love to pluck songs off those albums and mix them up with other songs, plunging them back into the rest of the manic slipstream of rock and roll. I’d rather hear the Beatles’ “Getting Better” on a mix tape than on Sgt. Pepper any day. I’d rather hear a Frank Sinatra song between Run-DMC and Bananarama than between two other Frank Sinatra songs. When you stick a song on a tape, you set it free.”
