“This book is the jewel of my life’s work. Who I am is this book."—Ryan Adams

Ryan Adams may be known primarily for acclaimed albums such as Heartbreaker, Gold, Love Is Hell, Cold Roses, Jacksonville City Nights, and Easy Tiger, but the world renowned singer-songwriter has always been a poet and fiction writer at heart. With the release of Infinity Blues, his non-musical writing is for the first time ever unveiled in book form. Mr. Adams' work rings of an emotional authenticity that provides perhaps an even deeper insight into the man than is revealed through the songs that have resonated with his hundreds of thousands of fans the world over.
