Pink Praise

The love keeps spreading for John Niven's imminent novella about Music from Big Pink. Here's what Barney Hoskyns has to say about it:

"John Niven took me back to a place and a musical time I'd only ever visited in my head, recreating the dazed bucolic idyll of The Band's Catskills and making the times and people uncannily believable. A brilliant fictional treatment of a landmark album. This man can write."

Although I'm tempted to put an exclamation point at the end there!
