Reviews

"A Dream About Lightning Bugs offers a glimpse inside the head of another musical genius while also being one of the best-written, most interesting musical memoirs of the rock era."--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"A masterfully written memoir, and so much more. Folds imbues this literary work with keen insight and humor to create an elegant and moving tribute to art and life itself."--Daniel Levitin, author of #1 New York Times bestseller This Is Your Brain on Music and The Organized Mind "Delightful . . . Singer-songwriter Folds explores the ways in which music shaped his life and offers glimpses into the process of making music. . . . Folds's fans will take great pleasure in this charming and insightful memoir."--Publishers Weekly "A Dream About Lightning Bugs reads like its author: intelligent, curious, unapologetically punk, and funny as hell. This intimate look at his life from his own unique perspective is a rare and unforgettable gift that does what Ben Folds always has done for me as an artist and a friend: encourages me to be more myself, with a lot of swear words."--Sara Bareilles "Engaging and solid . . . Rock memoirs have a distancing effect, but Ben Folds is as relatable as ever."--The Washington Post

"A memoir of sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll that's long on wry humor and short on--well, sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll. . . . A pleasure for fans and encouragement for novices to tune in."--Kirkus Reviews "[Folds's] journey, beginning with a dream he had at age three, is one of the most rewarding any musician has brought us along for in quite some time."--Paste Magazine
