Bob Lind

Bob Lind's new novel:

East of the Holyland

From acclaimed singer/songwriter Bob Lind, a powerful novel of an artist's struggle to survive.
Summer, 1964. Denver folksinger Jory Durham's world is falling apart. He's drinking, he's dead broke. His best friend is leaving town. His relationship with his girlfriend is hanging by a thread. And a deranged fan is worming his way into Jory's life.
But worst of all, the great folk music fad that filled the coffeehouses is on the decline.
To Jory, acoustic music is what he lives for. But he may have a chance at redemption: A benefit concert to save The PSYCHE coffeehouse where he got his start. If he and his fellow musicians can just get the club back on its feet, folk music in the Mile-High City might thrive again. And maybe — just maybe — Jory will be able to continue to live his passion: The Music!
