Peter Coviello discusses his new book, LONG PLAYERS: A LOVE STORY IN EIGHTEEN SONGS, with Kate Christensen
​​​​​​​
A story of heartbreak, (ex)step-parenthood, and the limitless grace of pop songs. Have you ever fallen in love — exalting, wracking, hilarious love—with a song? LONG PLAYERS is a book about that everyday kind of besottedness — and, also, about those other, more entangling sorts of love that songs can propel us into. We follow Peter Coviello through his happy marriage, his blindsiding divorce, and his fumbling post marital forays into sex and romance. Above all we travel with him as he calibrates, mix by mix and song by song, his place in the lives of two little girls, his suddenly ex-stepdaughters. In his grief, he considers what keeps us alive (sex, talk, dancing) and our many interwoven ways of falling in love: with books and bands and records, with friends, with lovers, with the families we make.
