Carefully curated by the artist himself, this is the follow-up collection of lyrics from one of the most innovative and enduring songwriters of the last century. Readers will find examples of all the features of the world that Van Morrison has created through his work: the back streets and mystic avenues; memories of childhood wonder and of adult work; the chime of church bells and the playing of the radio; the generous naming of other artists and the joy of solitude; love and sharp dealing; consolation and grace.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"[Keep 'Er Lit] features over 120 songs from Van The Man’s storied career, from the seminal Astral Weeks, through recent albums such as Roll With The Punches and The Prophet Speaks. To see these songs presented as prose and poetry once serves to prove yet again that Van Morrison is one of the greatest singer-songwriters ever. With an introduction by Hughes and a forward from Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon, this is an absolute must have for an Van Morrison fan. — Interrobang
