Neil Peart, OC, is a Canadian-American musician and author, best known as the drummer and primary lyricist for the rock band Rush. He also reviews books.
“All through 2012 and into 2013 I kept a list of the books I hoped to write about for Bubba’s Book Club. (The key word was “hoped.”) Unlike most book reviewers, I have the luxury of choosing to read only books that I expect to enjoy – whether on the strength of a good review, a friend’s recommendation, or a taste for the author’s previous work. Also unlike most book reviewers, I can choose to write about only the books I do enjoy.”
Some of the (many) titles reviewed by Mr Peart: Every Third Thought: A Novel in Five Seasons, John Barth (2011), Telegraph Avenue, Michael Chabon (2012), A Hologram for the King, Dave Eggers (2012), A Visit From the Goon Squad, Jennifer Egan (2010) etc etc etc
