Dave Alvin is a Grammy-winning artist, musician, songwriter, and poet. A founding member of The Blasters, he has gone on to release well over a dozen critically-acclaimed solo albums, and has published two previous collections of his poetry.
"Alvin's poems are naked depictions of lonely souls, dreamers, losers, heroes, and villains. A powerful overview of his literary vision." L.A. Reader (review of Any Rough Times Are Now Behind You )
