Mr. Rose is an appealing crank... Wall Street Journal

A couple of times every year we go down the road of wanting to feature an artist and then they turn out to be even more way cool or something than imagined and the whole endeavour gets more and more involved and what started as a brief conversation gets all transmogrified, probably by our stalkery inability to let our weak-grasp(TM) on a star go and... Yup, the content gets spun out over a week or so, with all of the accompanying brouhaha of a... insert your own excitable equivalent analogy here, and it's happened again and so this week is CD Rose Week in Outsideleft. 

CD Rose CoverCD Rose's most recent novel, 'Who's Who When Everyone Is Someone Else' from Melville House Press, is acclaimed on both sides of the Atlantic, and we're thrilled that he has co-operated so well, since we've rarely had such a well reviewed author bother to give us the time of day. It's a huge privilege to feature him in our little ol' punk rock zine.

So what thrills for you, dear reader? All great ones. Tuesday sees an excerpt from Who's Who When Everyone Is Someone Else. When we say well reviewed, we mean the crits are in from Michael Dirda in The Washington Post, Kirkus Review, Huff Post and way more, and even more importantly I guess, Who's Who... is rated as a must have by all of the dabblers in fiction I've spoken with who contribute to outsideleft.

On Thursday, we have a funny and wide-ranging interview with the man himself. And on Saturday CD offers something for the weekend with the first in our new series of low level celebrities sharing their list of music they would go to the Ends of the Earth to Never Hear Again...

CD Rose week in Outsideleft. It's happening.
