About this title


At twenty-one, after years playing in a band, Don Silver filled his briefcase with overblown resumes and headed to New York City, where he landed a job every musician dreamed of: working as an A&R man for Clive Davis. The problem was, the year was 1981 and the charts were topped by disco records. And to Don's horror, Clive seemed more interested in making hit singles that would make the cash register jingle than in finding great artists making important music. In two years, Don went from wanting nothing more than to please his temperamental boss to wanting nothing to do with the world this talented narcissist ruled. But is it that easy to give up the perks and power? Filled with the same love of language and lyricism that made his first novel, Backward-Facing Man, a critical success, this short literary memoir is not just a portrait of a great record man, but a riff on life, ambition and music that will touch readers hearts and souls, just like great rock n roll.

From the Author:

Clive was conceived at my friends' house over Thanksgiving dinner, 2011.  I was in the third year of the fourth rewrite of my second novel and to say I hated what I had would be an  understatement. After a few drinks, I started riffing on trying to make it as a professional musician, moving to NYC and landing my first real job. Apparently, as I talked, I became more animated than I'd been in months because my friends were like, dude, you should write this. Eventually, I did finish that novel and today it lives somewhere on my hard drive.  My fervent hope is that it never gets released.  Happily, writing Clive was a blast!
