Book: Things the Grandchildren Should Know by Mark Oliver Everett
Recommended by: Joseph, Adult Nonfiction Librarian
Mark Everett, otherwise known in the music world as 'E', is an ordinary guy with problems. He's also the singer-songwriter behind the Eels, an indie rock band that continues to defy convention and accumulate fans worldwide. Since his family was first struck by tragedy when E was a teenager, he has been through a lot of heartache which he describes in this memoir in plain, straightforward prose. Unlike most celebrity lives, E's pain seems thrust upon him by fate and is not the result of rock n' roll excess. That fact alone makes his resilience and his life story a triumph. Learn more by watching Parallel Worlds, Parallel Lives, and listening to EELS.
