9781938073830: Confidence, or the Appearance of Confidence: The Best of the Believer Music Interviews

Believer Books collects 35 interviews with some of today's most influential musicians and includes such conversational treasures as Björk on e.e. cummings, Lucinda Williams on writing about sex, Trey Anastasio on improvisation games, M.I.A. on the power of the internet, and Jack White on upholstering a couch. The interviews are conducted in The Believer magazine's intimate, casual, long-form style, and while they focus on the music—creating it, playing it, touring it, living with it—they never hesitate to explore the subjects' other passions. This collection is perfect for fans, lovers of the interview format, cultural aficionados, and aspiring polymaths.
