In hindsight, my favorite moment of the 2020 MLA Conference in Seattle wasn’t the excellent panels or my presentation or the fine coffee, beer, and seafood.
It was approaching the University of Minneapolis Press’s cubicle in the Academic Press Exhibition Hall and telling them: “I don’t see a copy on display, and this probably isn’t the crowd for it anyway, but THANK YOU for publishing Bill Sullivan’s Lemon Jail memoir. Pass that along to whoever made that call.”
The guy’s laughter made my trip. #mla2020
If you want to read a great roadie’s-eye-view of a great rock band, grab a copy.
