"A passionate, arresting, and entertaining book of verse . . . The images are vivid and the voice is honest and powerful" (Stephen King). This is the debut collection of poetry by singer/songwriter Ryan Adams, acclaimed for albums including Cardinology, Cold Roses, and Prisoner. His work in this volume rings with emotional authenticity-and provides perhaps an even deeper insight into the man than is revealed through the songs that have resonated with fans the world over. "Ryan Adams writes with equal parts precision and recklessness; the blood he draws from the text is easily as unnerving as its unapologetic tenderness. He is proof that poetry will find its writer." -Mary-Louise Parker "Infinity Blues is Ryan Adams at his personal, unforgettable best. Strong and beautiful and funny and pure. Like all his work, it's soul poetry of the highest order." -Cameron Crowe "This is much better than reading a friend's journal. It's more like watching somebody you love in the bathtub talking to himself. You're like, wow, he's even good at taking a bath. After reading Infinity Blues (which I think is a great title), I give Ryan Adams the best compliment I ever got-and the only reason for reading anyone's poetry. Ryan, I really like your mind." -Eileen Myles
