My new favorite tortured singer-songwriter, having begun with Joni Mitchell. Eitzel's immediate predecessor was Stephin Merritt, if that says anything. I like the scholarly approach Body gives to Eitzel's life. I would rather sit down and watch the planes fly into Oakland with him, however. And I wish his Kathleen could come back. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0946719209, Paperback)

Mark Eitzel is one of the great unheralded songwriters who has attracted a large cult following. Through unrestricted access to Eitzel, former band members, and friends, Sean Body has written a fascinating biography which portrays an artist tortured by demons, yet redeemed by the aching beauty of his songs.
