"Robert Gordon has done more than anyone alive to plumb the extraordinary depths of Memphis music and to chart the lives of the intensely original souls who've produced and performed it. Here in this richly reported collection of non-fiction gems, Gordon gives us a powerful sense of the weird and wonderful cross-pollinations that have long made Memphis the gestation ground for our nation's most righteous and authentic music. With Memphis Rent Party, you’ll be tapping your foot from the first page to the last." - Hampton Sides, author of HELLHOUND ON HIS TRAIL
