Talented, charismatic songwriter Nathan Warren lost his chance at stardom years ago, and now sees his life as a waste and ruin. Kit Palmer is young, beautiful, and explosively gifted, but her dreams are also doomed unless she can keep from falling apart on stage. They travel the Boston folk scene as lovers and artists, through basement clubs and funky jam sessions, rowdy open mikes and sprawling festivals, seeking stardom for one and redemption for the other.

"A terrific, cathartic, hard-to-put-down read."  - Mark Moss, editor, Sing Out! The Folk Music Magazine

Scott Alarik covered folk music in The Boston Globe for over 20 years. Pete Seeger called him "one of the best writers in America," and the Library Journal called his first book, Deep Community: Adventures in the Modern Folk Underground, "An essential primer of the continuing folk revival." Alarik is also a singer-songwriter who toured the national folk circuit and performed regularly on A Prairie Home Companion.
