By Geoff Berner
Novelist Geoff Berner has been tasked with writing a biography of DD, a mysterious, charismatic, chimerical musician who has, it kind of feels, dropped off the face of the earth. during his look for DD, Berner interviews her associates, ex-bandmates, ex-lovers, and others. They paint such variable pics of her that every successive try and describe her casts doubt at the earlier testimony. As his venture is taken over by way of the vigorous, infuriating, wonderful stories, a wounded, talented, and intricate DD starts off to emerge from all of the eyewitness money owed and swear-to-God real stories.
Who is DD? the place did she cross? And why didn’t that e-book get written? go back and forth via an international of knockabout musicians and chancers, at the path of an inimitable artist who really lives within the second, for larger or worse.
