You can tell a lot about somebody in a minute. If you choose the right minute. As a journalist (for Rolling Stone, the "New York Times", and elsewhere) and bestselling author, Neil Strauss considers it his job to hang around celebrities, rock gods, porn queens, up-and-coming starlets, and iconic superstars long enough - whether it takes moments or months - to find that minute, the one when the curtain finally falls away and the real person is revealed. In this new collection, Strauss offers up 120 of those singular, hit-you-in-the guts, perception-altering, revolutionary minutes, as only he can - with total honesty, deadpan wit, and unmatched style. Among the game-changing moments collected here are interviews with: Tom Cruise; Snoop Dogg; Madonna; Johnny Cash; Cher and Dave Navarro; Oasis; Julian Casablancas of The Strokes; Brian Wilson; Eric Clapton; and, Hugh Hefner. Wickedly illustrated throughout with sketches by artist Sian Pattenden, Strauss' first-ever collection of rock journalism is equally raw and revealing (Tom Cruise on Scientology, Brian Wilson on drugs and alcohol), hilarious (Snoop Dogg on record companies and baby diapers), and deeply honest (Eric Clapton on the death of Kurt Cobain and his own struggle with depression). "Everyone Loves You When You're Dead" is Neil Strauss, cultural journalist, at his finest.
