August 21, 2014 21
On October 14, ECW Press will publish “Far And Near: On Days Like These”, the new book from RUSH drummer Neil Peart.
A description of the 312-page hardcover reads as follows: “Whether navigating the backroads of Louisiana or Thuringia, exploring the snowy Quebec woods, or performing onstage at RUSH concerts, Neil Peart has stories to tell. His first volume in this series, ‘Far And Away’, combined words and images to form an intimate, insightful narrative that won many readers. Now ‘Far And Near’ brings together reflections from another three years of an artist’s life as he celebrates seasons, landscapes, and characters, travels roads and trails, receives honors, climbs mountains, composes and performs music. With passionate insight, wry humor, and an adventurous spirit, once again Peart offers a collection of open letters that take readers on the road, behind the scenes, and into the inner workings of an ever-inquisitive mind. These popular stories, originally posted on Peart’s website, are now collected and contextualized with a new introduction and conclusion in this beautifully designed collector’s volume.”
