I’ve got a book giveaway going at Goodreads right now.
I’m giving away ten trade paperback copies of my rock ‘n’ roll novel, True Love Scars.
Here’s what other writers are saying about the book:
“Michael Goldberg is comparable to Kerouac in a 21st century way, someone trying to use that language and energy and find a new way of doing it.” – Mark Mordue, author of Dastgah: Diary of a Head Trip
“Radioactive as Godzilla.” – Richard Meltzer, author of The Aesthetics of Rock
Here’s what reviewers at Amazon are saying about the book:
5.0 out of 5 stars GET IT, August 14, 2014
By Barbara Shelley “James Joyce book geek” (Los Angeles, CA)
‘First times’ are the most memorable. Michael Goldberg’s new book takes the reader on a wild, crazy and love-filled trip through high school and college ‘first times.’ Rock ‘n’ roll runs through his blood while he tells his story of lust, love, drugs and the dreaded parents. But this isn’t just any sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll story. It’s written in first person almost as if Goldberg is in the room telling the story that moved me to out loud laughing and memories that moved my soul. If Bob Dylan, Marianne Faithful, The Rolling Stones, Iggy Pop, Captain Beefheart, or the New York Dolls mean anything to you, you will love this book. I couldn’t put it down for a minute and rammed my way through the best book I’ve read in years. Not since “Nightwood” by Djauna Barnes and that was in l969. Get it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Michael/Writerman The Duality of Michael Stein July 15, 2014
By Adam Strong
Through the lens of a true Dylanophile, Goldberg’s narrator is rendered with a voice that rattles off the page.
