MA – Moby Signing

00000000_moby

Musician Moby appears at Brookline Booksmith on Friday May 20th at 7:00 pm to sign his new memoir PORCELAIN.

From one of the most interesting and iconic musicians of our time, a piercingly tender, funny, and harrowing account of the path from suburban poverty and alienation to a life of beauty, squalor and unlikely success out of the NYC club scene of the late ’80s and ’90s. Moby’s voice resonates with honesty, wit, and, above all, an unshakable passion for his music that steered him through some very rough seas.

The ancient csestriim are back to finish their purge of humanity; armies march against the capital, and capricious gods walk the earth in human guise with agendas of their own. But the three imperial siblings at the heart of it all come to understand that even if they survive the holocaust unleashed on their world, there may be no reconciling their conflicting visions of the future.
