5. "Advertising Space Available Here: An Autobiography"
- Wally Pleasant

King made this book up. It doesn't exist, or not yet anyhow. But King is a big fan of the East Lansing singer-songwriter. He called him a "genius." He said Pleasant is "my favorite artist," and swears he would read Pleasant's autobiography in a heartbeat. "Brain scorching, brilliant, compelling, lyrical, unforgettable, tastier than Denny's at 4 a.m.," King said. "I couldn't put it down. The true story of music in Lansing, through the ears of the greatest musician of the 20th century (and beyond)."

Straight from the bookseller's mouth

John King on: 

  • Music
    "I love (East Lansing singer-songwriter) Wally Pleasant. That's my favorite artist. How many people can write a song on yeast infections or Denny's at 4 in the morning? The guy's a genius."
