War On Sound
"War on Sound is a Homeric undertaking, a transcontinental story about four musicians trying to navigate a ruthless industry. Harris knows his subject and the novel crackles with realism. It's filled with sex, drugs and rock and roll, of course, but also dwells in youthful ideals, heartbreak and the uncommon joy of small victories. It will resonate with anyone who's ever tried to make a living doing something they love."
"Having spent most of my twenties in a touring rock band, I know a thing or two about the perils and pleasures of the rock and roll lifestyle. Harris lovingly captures the pathos and exhilaration of life on the road, allowing you to ride shotgun in a Ford Econoline."
"War On Sound reminds me of ambition, and the craziness of applying ambition to the mixed-up world of rock and roll specifically, and music more generally."
"We've been through the various rungs of the indie rock scene, and Harris gets it right on so many levels. His book is flashback-inducing and accurately portrays what it's like to be a struggling band in the indie scene."
"War On Sound beautifully and vividly captures the crazy, heartbreaking, thrilling, monomaniacal dream of being in a rock band."
"War On Sound depicts an accurate and very evocative representation of life in the music business. An entertaining and thought-provoking novel."
"What happened to the great American rock band? Chris Harris offers an answer in War on Sound, his take on the great American novel, and a story that's both expansive and intimate."
