The Official Flavorpill Bookshelf: February Staff Reading Picks

By Jason Bailey

Willis_Out cover“I finally made it to Out of the Vinyl Deeps, the Ellen Willis collection, and am enjoying it currently; her writing is incredibly vibrant, and she’s got a distinctive voice that’s really easy to get wrapped up in. Plus, I always enjoy reading ‘present tense’ criticism; so much of the stuff she’s writing about is music I love but that’s always been ‘classic’ rock; reading her immediate responses to, say, Exile on Main St. or Blood on the Tracks is really fascinating.”
— Jason Bailey, Flavorwire Film Editor
