About the Book

A ROLLING STONE, MOJO, and PITCHFORK BOOK OF THE YEAR
A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The story, in his own words, of one of the century's most feted singer songwriters: Jeff Tweedy, the man behind music by Uncle Tupelo, Wilco, and Tweedy.

Through his pioneering work in the legendary country-punk band Uncle Tupelo, to his enduring legacy as the creative force behind the unclassifiable sound of Wilco, Jeff Tweedy has weaved his way between the underground and the mainstream. While his songs have been endlessly discussed and analysed, rarely has Tweedy talked directly about himself in any detail – until now. Funny, disarming and deeply honest, his memoir casts light on his unique creative process and the moments that have shaped his life and career.

‘There’s a big-heartedness to the way he writes: humorous, fearless, unflinching.’
GUARDIAN

‘Frank, engaging, and often very funny.’
MOJO

‘Enlightening . . . a rock’n’roll book that quietly dismantles what we expect from rock’n’roll books.’
PITCHFORK

‘A uniquely raw autobiography.’
ROLLING STONE

‘Wildly entertaining . . . breathtaking . . . unforgettable . . . it’s a wonderful book, alternately sorrowful and triumphant.’

“It seems clear this frank, engaging, often very funny memoir is part of an ongoing recovery process”
- Mojo
“Through his pioneering work in the legendary country-punk band, Uncle Tupelo, to his enduring legacy as the creative force behind the unclassifiable sound of Wilco, Jeff Tweedy has weaved his way between the underground and the mainstream - and back again. Funny, disarming, and deeply honest, his memoir casts light on his unique creative process and the stories that shaped his life and career, from a childhood spent in Illinois to the release of No Depression in the early 90's - which set the blueprint for alt-country - and later working with Mavis Staples and, posthumously, Woody Guthrie.”
