This project features a collection of candid interviews with the leader of this beloved rock band, Jerry Garcia. The publication date has been set for November 2015.

Black Dog & Leventhal will publish the print edition and Hachette Audio will release the audiobook edition. Dennis McNally, the band’s former publicist and authorized biographer, edited this book. Trixie Garcia, Garcia’s daughter, wrote the foreword.

Here’s more from the press release: “The audiobook edition will allow fans the intimate experience of listening in on hours of candid conversations spanning decades and a variety of topics. These archival recordings perfectly capture Jerry’s warm presence, sly wit, and unforgettable laugh, and are further enhanced by the inclusion of a dozen original, previously unreleased live musical recordings courtesy of the Garcia family, making it a beautiful keepsake package and the ultimate addition to any true fan’s collection.”
