About this Event
Join us in Books Upstairs at 6.00 p.m., 21st February to celebrate the launch of You spin me round: Essays on music. With readings from Wendy Erskine, Aingeala Flannery, Colin Graham, and Declan Long.
You spin me round is an illuminating collection of essays, an essential mixtape that takes elements of music – songs, performances, albums, gigs – as points of departure. Some of the finest writers at work today reflect on what music has meant to them at different moments in their lives.
The writers sift through the material artefacts of their music worlds – torn ticket stubs, creased flyers, worsted wristbands – those items that slip out of a book or the back of a drawer, or that appear crumpled in the pocket of an old coat. You spin me round is a compilation of totems, a distillation of ineffable musical experiences.
With contributions by Ciaran Carson, Brian Dillon, Wendy Erskine, Aingeala Flannery, Peter Geoghegan, Colin Graham, M. John Harrison, Tabitha Lasley, Declan Long, Jayne A. Quan, McKenzie Wark, and Sydney Weinberg.
