Falling Cars and Junkyard Dogs by Jay Farrar

In this collection of beautifully crafted autobiographical vignettes, Jay Farrar visits the places he’s journeyed to over twenty years as a traveling musician, and recalls his formative childhood, raised by his parents from the Missouri Ozarks.

As a child, he marveled at the eccentric habits and mannerisms of his father, though it has taken him over 40 years to fully appreciate his guidance. Recollections of Farrars father are prominent throughout the stories. Ultimately, it is music and musicians that are given the most space and the final word since music has been the creative impetus and driving force for the past 35 years of his life.

In writing these stories, he found a natural inclination to focus on very specific experiences; a method analogous to the songwriting process. The highlights and pivotal experiences from that musical journey are all represented as the binding thread in these stories, illustrated throughout with photography from his life. If life is a movie, then these stories are the still frames.

Thank you! A slim, sketchy, not-quite memoir that defies categorization but plainly comes from a personal place within its musician author. As the taciturn leader of alternative-country cult favorites Uncle Tupelo and, more recently, Son Volt, Farrar would seem to be the last rock artist who would bare his soul in the pages of a book. Most of these pieces, too short to be chapters, are a page, a paragraph or even a sentence or two long. Whoever puts on the biggest freak show wins the prize. Not particularly well-written or elegant, but it provides some illumination of the creative mind of a very private artist. There was a problem adding your email address.
