I’ll Be Here in the Morning: The Songwriting Legacy of Townes Van Zandt
In this tightly woven, intelligently written book, Brian T. Atkinson interviews both well-known musicians and up-and-coming artists to reveal, in the performers' own words, how their creative careers have been shaped by the life and work of Townes Van Zandt. Kris Kristofferson, Guy Clark, Billy Joe Shaver, Rodney Crowell, Lucinda Williams, and Lyle Lovett are just a few of the established musicians who share their impressions of the breathtakingly beautiful tunes and lyrics he created, along with their humorous, poignant, painful, and indelible memories of witnessing Van Zandt's rise and fall.

Atkinson balances the reminiscences of seasoned veterans with the observations of relative newcomers to the international music scene, such as Jim James (My Morning Jacket), Josh Ritter, and Scott Avett (the Avett Brothers), presenting a nuanced view of Van Zandt's singular body of work, his reckless lifestyle, and his long-lasting influence. Forewords by "Cowboy" Jack Clement and longtime Van Zandt manager and friend Harold F. Eggers Jr. open the book, and each chapter begins with an introduction in which Atkinson provides context and background, linking each interviewee to Van Zandt's legacy.

Mike Lovett, reduce della seconda guerra mondiale, affitta una stanza in un appartamento di Brooklyn Heights, sull'East River, con l'intenzione di ritirarvisi per scrivere un romanzo. A causa di una vecchia ferita, soffre di amnesie, e i suoi ricordi affiorano solo in modo intermittente, come incubi da cui fatica a risvegliarsi. Lui e i suoi coinquilini – McLeod, l'ex bolscevico che sta cercando di espiare crimini inconfessabili, Hollingsworth, l'uomo del governo, la fragile Lannie Madison e la prosperosa padrona di casa Guinevere sembrano tutti alle prese con questioni troppo grandi per loro. Attraverso una schiera di personaggi pervasi da velleit rivoluzionarie, impulsi nichilisti e smanie sessuali, simboli di una generazione sconvolta e disperata ma colma di vitalit e di cruda poesia, Mailer ci restituisce un ritratto critico degli Stati Uniti e delle sue ossessioni durante il maccartismo. Una sottile riflessione sul rapporto tra Storia e scelte personali in un romanzo profetico sulla fine delle grandi illusioni ideologiche del Novecento.
