Writer Bill Bamberger on TOUCHED BY GRACE: Gary, I don't often participate in "Year's Readings" lists, but I want to make an exception here, because one of the 5 best books I read this year was yours: TOUCHED BY GRACE. No brown-nosing intended, I assure you. What makes it better than most music-slash-bio books is that while the partnership story is certainly interesting, for me what is more fascinating is your descriptions of the creative process, the nuts and bolts and finger-blisters and—most impressive—of those indefinable core-sparks that have to be struck for any set of ideas and gifts of technique to come together as music. So, with no slight on Jeff Buckley, those sharp descriptions of the feel of the creative process are what stay with me. ___ Available on Gary's merch page here!
