In his debut book, writer and blogger David Zahl riffs on the intersection of music, memoir, and theology to create a fresh and colorful series of essays that truly stands alone. Constructed like an album, A Mess of Help surveys some of pop's most eccentric icons in hopes of finding answers to both the small questions ("Who am I?") and the big ones ("What about Michael Jackson?"), unearthing timeless wisdom even as it entertains. So if you've ever wondered how fundamentalism sparked Guns N' Roses, what ABBA can do for your marriage, or why Brian Wilson built his sandbox, open your heart and drop the needle.
