Reflections on art, life, and music from the genre-defying icon, in a memoir that is as nuanced, witty and relatable as his cult-classic songs. Ben Folds is a celebrated American singer-songwriter and frontman of the alternative rock band Ben Folds Five, beloved for songs such as... `Brick', `You Don't Know Me' and `The Luckiest'. In A Dream About Lightning Bugs, he looks back on his life in a charming, funny and wise chronicle of his artistic coming-of-age, infused with the wry observations of a natural storyteller. He opens up about finding his voice as a musician, becoming a rock anti-hero, and hauling a baby grand piano around for every performance. From growing up in working class North Carolina, to painful life lessons learned the hard way, he also ruminates on creativity in the digital age, the absurdity of life on the road, and the challenges of sustaining a multi-decade career in the music business. A Dream about Lightning Bugs embodies what Folds has been singing about for years: Smile like you've got nothing to prove, because it hurts to grow up, but everybody does, and life flies by in seconds.
