A new book from Wesley Stace, a.k.a. John Wesley Harding
The musician known as John Wesley Harding writes books as Wesley Stace. That's one of the things he tries to explain to comedian Eugene Mirman in the video above, a promo for Stace's upcoming novel, "Charles Jessold, Considered as a Murderer." Set in Europe in the early part of the 20th century, it tells the story of a critic, the gifted composer Jessold and his tragic love triangle. The book is due out in February, and Stace -- Harding? -- will be in Los Angeles in March, appearing at the L.A. Public Library's nighttime event This is Your Library.
