Omtale God Save My Queen II
A COLLECTION OF LYRICAL ESSAYS DRAWING ON A VERY UNLIKELY SOURCE OF INSPIRATION: QUEEN The poet and cultural critic Daniel Nester returns with this sequel to GOD SAVE THE QUEEN. This collection has a particular focus on Freddie Mercury's death of AIDS A lyrical combination of memoir, poetry, trivia, and rock history provide the follow-up to Daniel Nester's first book on the British band Queen. Nester blends personal anecdotes with Queen's music to form the liner notes to his own psychosexual awakening, including an exquisite tribute to the unforgettable Mercury, who died of AIDS in 1991. Short essays - or riffs - are devoted to each Queen track on their last five studio albums, as well as a few solo and live efforts. The book is seven inches square, the same size as a vinyl 45-rpm record. Not quite memoir, neither prose poetry nor rock book, it will, nonetheless, rock you.
