Special Deluxe Synopsis

Neil Young centres this new work on one of his life's passions, cars, using the framework of all the cars he's ever owned to construct a narrative of his life and career, exploring and demonstrating how memories are attached to objects. Young also expresses regret for the environmental impact of his past cars, and now passionately advocates the use of clean energy. Special Deluxe is a mix of memoir and environmental politics by one of the most gifted and influential artists of our time. The next installment of Neil Young's memoir after Waging Heavy Peace, Special Deluxe is essential reading for his fans and will also appeal to readers of Life by Keith Richards and Chronicles by Bob Dylan.

Special Deluxe Press Reviews

Praise for Neil Young:

'Its biographical insights, career anecdotes and generous quotations from his lyrics make it an ideal present for Neil Young fans. And even those who don't know his work will find it endearingly wacky and oddly wise' -- Blake Morrison Guardian

'Not your average rock-star autobiography...Young is a natural obsessive and a bit cantankerous, which makes an interesting combination.' Richard Williams, Guardian

'Waging Heavy Peace is as charismatically off the wall as Neil Young's records.' Janet Maslin, New York Times
