Fair warning, I am a little obsessed. I get that way sometimes. I have 3 copies of Gandhi’s Experiments in Truth, 2 copies of Tosha Silver’s Outrageous Openness and now I am laser focused on Tom Wilson’s ; Beautiful Scars. My book obsessions are pretty far reaching.
I don’t live in Hamilton and never have but I live close and I am close to Mr Wilson’s age. He writes it like he sees it and I think that’s why I was a fan of Junkhouse and Blackie and the Rodeo Kings even though my other musical tastes are way down deep int eh middle of the road.
Beautiful Scars is a short book in the scheme of things and there is nothing remotely sugar coated about it but, it strikes a huge chord. The book came out on the 21st of this month and I am not far enough away from it to be out of the honeymoon stage but, I am sure I will circle back in a month or 2 and buy a few more copies for friends and acquaintances and spread the Hammer town, Tom Wilson story.
Ok, book crush over and out – until next time
