PARKER: A Miscellany
Copies Now Available

Published in a limited edition in 2016, PARKER: A Miscellany is a non-fiction companion to the Charlie Parker novels, using music as a starting point for much of its contents. PARKER: A Miscellany includes:

Introductions to the first 13 Parker novels and Bad Men, including an as-yet-unpublished introduction to A Song of Shadows.

An essay on every song to feature on the six CD compilations created for the books (included with Parker: A Miscellany), with each song as a window on the Parker novels, music, writing, or general creativity.

"The Music Lover," a long essay on John's life as a music fan.

Revised versions of three essays previously published in other volumes, collected here for the first time: "The Origins of Charlie Parker;" "No Blacks, No Dogs, No Crime Writers: Ireland and the Mystery Genre;" and "Introduction to the Scorpion Press edition of The Glass Rainbow by James Lee Burke."

At nearly 300 pages, the book comes in a slipcase with a ribbon bookmark. Noted artist Neil Shawcross designed the detailed wraparound cover, in full color.

This book is now available in a signed and numbered edition of 900; sorry, we cannot honor requests for specific numbers.
