About Unfaithful Music and Disappearing Ink

This book describes how Costello's career has somehow endured for almost four decades through a combination of dumb luck and animal cunning. Even managing the occasional absurd episode of pop stardom. The memoir, written entirely by Costello himself, offers his unique view of his unlikely and also sometimes comical rise to international success. As well as with diversions through the previously undocumented emotional foundations of some of his best known songs and the hits of tomorrow. The book contains many stories and observations about his renowned co-writers and co-conspirators, though Costello also pauses along the way for considerations on the less appealing side of infamy.


Artist Bio

Born Declan Patrick MacManus, Elvis Costello was raised in London and Liverpool. He was the grandson of a trumpet player on the White Star Line and was also the son of a jazz musician who became a successful radio dance band vocalist. So, Costello went into the family business and had taken the popular music world by storm before he was twenty-four. Nowadays, Costello continues to add to one of the most intriguing and extensive songbooks of the day. His performances have taken him from a cardboard guitar in his front room to fronting a rock and roll band on your television screen. Then to performing in the world's greatest concert halls in a wild variety of company.
