Bang Your Head, David Konow Bang Your Head, David Konow
Let's be honest now, literary mavens. Did you really prefer Orwell's 1984 to Van Halen's 1984? Would you really rather hang out with Alice Walker than Alice Cooper? Can you really read Tolkein without thinking of The Battle of Evermore? David Konow knows and savors the guilty pleasure that was and is heavy metal. Let him take you back to the days when you doodled the Judas Priest logo on your notebook during AP English.

Sometimes a story can just be a satisfying, weekend read that makes you feel good when you're done. Sheila Williams has served up a nice dish with this novel, a real comfy eggs-and-bacon-style peek into someone else's life.

Anne Carson's new translation of these fragments offers readers another look at one of the earliest poets to have survived to the present day as well as the origins of the lyric poem.
