By the bestselling author of Sam Phillips: The Man Who Invented Rock ‘n’ Roll and Blues Hall of Fame inductee, essays on the role of inspiration, timing, and fate that led to the creative successes (and failures) of his favorite artists

In his first collection of essays, Peter Guralnick dives deep into question at the heart of his body of work: What is the source of creativity? Spanning his decades-long career as America’s foremost music scholar, this book brings us into the minds of the artists who inspire him.

Looking to Get Lost brings the reader into Guralnick’s one-of-a-kind relationships with his subjects, and we peek into how he was able to engage with musicians, writers, and creators as only he can: as a fan, a student, a peer, and in many cases as a friend.
