A Dream About Lightning Bugs

Review From User :

Having been a fan of Folds for over two decades I wasn't sure what to expect from this. Folds has at various points in his life been an open book and others not so much. He can also write joke songs while playing with an orchestra.

What we end up in the book is mostly a straight forward, serious book. His wit is there, but he really hits on what's important to him. He goes into music theory without getting overly technical. He talks about some low points in his life (if you're looking for sex and drugs you won't find much here). He admits when he was wrong and isn't afraid to share his insecurities.

While compared to a lot of musician biographies this one is pretty tame, it's the heart that comes through here. You have someone who was passionate about their music but also kept their moral code in place. It's been a while since I've read a biography I didn't want to end.
