A new book from Wesley Stace, a.k.a. John Wesley Harding

January 4, 2011 |  9:26 am

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.
