Praise for James Yorkston:
‘It’s humble and funny… Yorkston explores and explodes some of the myths associated with touring while still managing to render the mundane splendid and find romance in the everyday.’
Loud and Quiet
‘…a delight to read—Yorkston’s a warm, folksy writer, his dry wit constant even in journal prose.’
