This is turning into an OUTSTANDING year! There’s an album of songs by Camden Joy coming this fall (listen to the first single here) AND a new edition of Lost Joy coming out THIS MONTH. And yes, the rumors are true, this edition features an introduction by Jonathan Lethem (author of “The Fortress of Solitude” among many other things) as well as a provocative new cover designed by Mark Lerner of Rag & Bone Shop. Lost Joy is unlike any other book you’ve read. A long out-of-print collection of rants and yarns, posters and pamphlets, stories and record reviews, Lost Joy has been revived thanks to Steve Connell at Verse Chorus Press. It will be available in both paperback and kindle editions starting July 14. You can already preorder it from Skylight Books in Los Angeles, from Powell’s in Portland or at Amazon.
