In the opening pages of The Funeral Papers, Josh Gross fusses with the antiquated sound equipment in the synagogue hosting his father's funeral. He's looking for a way to play the ten songs on the playlist that was his one contribution to the funeral for his father -- a man to which Josh had barely spoken for ten years.
Josh's description of each of the songs in the playlist kicks off the wry, clever, emotive feeling of the memoir and gives a nice, concise description of the characters and scenes to come. It's also full of a bunch o' good songs.
Have a listen! Or better yet: have a listen while reading The Funeral Papers, our memoir by Josh Gross out August 8th!
