Keep ‘Er Lit – New Selected Lyrics
‘Van Morrison‘s status as an original is assured,’ writes Eamonn Hughes in his introduction to Keep ‘Er Lit, a second volume of lyrics published by Faber and Faber. The new book follows Lit Up Inside and goes deeper into the lauded songwriter’s oeuvre and features one hundred and twenty songs from across Morrison’s career, from the early albums like Astral Weeks and Moondance right through to recent offerings such as Roll with the Punches and The Prophet Speaks.
In his foreword to the book, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon writes that Van Morrison ‘continues to embody a parade of paradoxes; he is a very successful businessman who hates business, a celebrity who disavows celebrity culture, a supreme showman who is, as they say, pathologically shy.’
Keep ‘Er Lit is a must-have for any Van Morrison fan, and the limited edition, signed by the author, would make a vaunted addition to any aficionado’s collection.
To celebrate our relationship as booksellers for many of Van Morrison’s shows in Belfast and beyond, No Alibis has produced an exclusive canvas bag, only available with purchases of Keep ‘Er Lit online and in-store. Featuring a screen-printed design on heavyweight organic canvas which tips its hat to vinyl test-pressing labels from the 1960s, this bag adds a unique element to the publication of the book.
