Don’t Suck, Don’t Die – Giving up Vic Chesnutt

A haunting ode to a lost friend, this memoir by the acclaimed author of Rat Girl offers the most personal, empathetic look at the creative genius and often-tormented life of singer-songwriter Vic Chesnutt that is ever likely to be written.

“Don’t Suck, Don’t Die is not only one of the best books of the year, it’s one of the most beautiful rock memoirs ever written.”
—Michael Schaub, NPR
