Title: Master of Reality
Author: John Darnielle
Page Count: 104
This is a short but sweet little book with a lot to offer, especially if you’re a Mountain Goats fan. John Darnielle is their lead singer, but he’s also a pretty decent little writer, as I already knew from Wolf in White Van.
This is part of a series from Bloomsbury that are homages to popular albums, and this one is the entry for Black Sabbath. Darnielle reflects the actual format of a vinyl here with a fascinating epistolary story told in two halves.
