"Sparks-Tastic"' by Tosh Berman
Published by A Barnacle Book (Distribution by Publishers Group West)
Publication Date: May 14, 2013
In 2008, Tosh Berman--author and publisher of TamTam Books--got on a plane with a single motive: "Sparks Spectacular." It had been announced that the band Sparks would perform all twenty-one of their albums in a succession of twenty-one nights in London...a monumental experience for any Sparks fanatic. Part travel journal, part personal memoir, Berman takes us through the streets of London and Paris, observing both cities' history and culture through the eye of an obsessive Sparks fan's lens. Including album-by-album reviews of all twenty-one albums and beyond, "Sparks-Tastic" defines a place and time in music history that's too defining to be ignored.
And at the moment, Book Soup, Stories, Powell's Books, and City Lights have signed copies in their stock. Do contact them (easily findable on the Internet) and they will mail it out to you.
