dc.description.abstract Have you ever fallen in love - wracking, hilarious, hopeless love - with a pop song? Peter Coviello will read from LONG PLAYERS, his book about just that sort of swoony besotted love - which is ALSO about the other, more knotty, more entangling kinds of love that songs can lead us into. en_US
