Brian Fallon // “Great Expectations”

With Dan Andriano doing backing vocals, along with Chuck Ragan and Dave Hause. They throw in a verse from an Alkaline Trio song towards the end, which is how i’m justifying uploading this song here.

Great live version of this song. Love that harp.

Today’s post is dedicated to Carson McCullers’s brilliant first novel, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, which was published to great acclaim almost 75 years ago when the author was just 23. This novel is for anyone who has ever felt like an outsider or reject. I recently re-read the 1940 classic, and have collected various editions and incarnations of the book, most of my adult life. Here’s a sampling.  

Beautiful covers for this beautiful book. Also among this reporter’s favorite book titles of all time.

John Steinbeck’s house on the upper East Side of New York was sparsely decorated—Josef Breitenbach remembers only a painting of the writer’s wife and child—when the photographer visited him there in the early forties. He remembers being welcomed cordially, but with an apology from Steinbeck that he must finish doing his laundry before the session might begin. Breitenbach, newly arrived in the U.S., had never before seen a washing machine, so Steinbeck invited him to the laundry room to see how such a thing worked. Steinbeck was followed everywhere by a pet that Breitenbach found appropriate to the writer’s simple and friendly presence: a large, scruffy sheepdog.
From the portfolio “Ten Portraits.”
