Basically what the book consists of is a loopy text of me having a conversation with someone named Julia about Dylan’s book Chronicles, at a Strokes gig. It’s supposed to seem like an excerpt out of a novel. The text is short, only just over a couple pages. The rest [of the book consists of] pics of me from over the [years].
