Join the author as he discusses Lou Reed and his newest book about him!

As lead singer and songwriter for the Velvet Underground and a renowned solo artist, Lou Reed invented alternative rock.

Rolling Stone writer Anthony DeCurtis, who knew Reed and interviewed him extensively, tells the provocative story of his complex and chameleonic life. DeCurtis tracks Reed's five-decade career through the accounts of those who knew him and through Reed's most revealing testimony, his music.

Gritty, intimate, and unflinching, Lou Reed: A Life is an illuminating tribute to one of the most incendiary artists of our time.
