I have waited a long time to make this announcement. My forthcoming book is R.E.M. The Early Years. This deep-dive into the origins of a great American band has been in the works since 2012 and will see release in Fall 2018 from Verse Chorus Press. If you would like to be on a mailing list for further announcements, please go to my main page at http://www.robertdeanlurie.com/index/ and enter your email address in the "Join" box. Can't wait for y'all to read this one.
