The story, in his own words, of one of the century's most feted singer-songwriters: Jeff Tweedy, the man behind music by Uncle Tupelo, Wilco, and Tweedy.
Through his pioneering work in the legendary country-punk band, Uncle Tupelo, to his enduring legacy as the creative force behind the unclassifiable sound of Wilco, Jeff Tweedy has weaved his way between the underground and the mainstream - and back again.
Funny, disarming, and deeply honest, his memoir casts light on his unique creative process and the stories that shaped his life and career, from a childhood spent in Illinois to the release of No Depression in the early 90s - which set the blueprint for alt-country - and later working with Mavis Staples and, posthumously, Woody Guthrie.
