“A piece of lesbian history from the “girl with a guitar” who truly sang for her supper. Jamie brings the road to you in color and out loud.” – Suzanne Westenhoefer
“An extraordinary glimpse into the life of a touring musician.” — Nancy Manahan, author/editor, Lesbian Nuns: Breaking Silence
Drive All Night tells the real story of what it’s like to be a touring musician, from taking off my shirt for Amy Ray to sharing housing with a pig. A real one. Then there was the time Jesus appeared at a gig and the concert where my opening act read poetry about bodily functions. Oh and I had to tour in Hawaii (I know, you feel sorry for me) and one time, Melissa Etheridge came to my gig.
Drive All Night is available directly from Bella Books as well as a plethora of bookstores and online sites.
The Advocate called it a must-read, I was on the front page of the Durham Herald talking about the book, award-winning playwright Carolyn Gage called me a bad ass, and Ottawa’s Xtra gave me some great press.
