Lay Down Your Weary Tune Didn’t Win a Nobel Prize .. but Bob Dylan did!

ldywtFirst, a huge congratulations to Bob Dylan for receiving a much deserved Nobel Prize in Literature for “having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition,”

Second, what better time to finally read W.B. Belcher’s beautiful debut Lay Down Your Weary Tune about a Dylan-esque folk musician and his unwanted biographer struggling to unravel their own mythologies, face the mistakes of their pasts, and maneuver an uncertain future together.

Matthew Quick, New York Times bestselling author of The Silver Linings Playbook calls Lay Down Your Weary Tune “A heartening, timeless, and stirring song for the ‘perfectly broken.’ Beautifully thrownback. Openhanded. True.”

Library Journal says: “Appealing…Mingling elements from both literature and the blues, Belcher has crafted a memorable tale about how the masks and myths we create can become prisons that ultimately disconnect us from ourselves.”
