As a follow-up to his 2011 book FAR and AWAY: A Prize Every Time, Neil Peart and ECW Press will be publishing Far and Near: On Days Like These. The book currently has a release date of October 14th, 2014.Whether navigating the backroads of Louisiana or Thuringia, exploring the snowy Quebec woods, or performing onstage at Rush concerts, Neil Peart has stories to tell. His first volume in this series, Far and Away, combined words and images to form an intimate, insightful narrative that won many readers.A hard-cover edition of the book is available for pre-order at Amazon.Com for $22.76. An E-Book version of the book is expected to be released simultaneously.
Now Far and Near brings together reflections from another three years of an artist’s life as he celebrates seasons, landscapes, and characters, travels roads and trails, receives honors, climbs mountains, composes and performs music. With passionate insight, wry humor, and an adventurous spirit, once again Peart offers a collection of open letters that take readers on the road, behind the scenes, and into the inner workings of an ever-inquisitive mind.
These popular stories, originally posted on Peart’s website, are now collected and contextualized with a new introduction and conclusion in this beautifully designed collector’s volume.
