Steve Almond loves music—so much so that he calls himself a “drooling fanatic.”  His new book, Rock and Roll Will Save Your Life, is a paean to all the drooling music fanatics of the world, “the sort of guys and dolls,” he says “who walk around with songs ringing in our ears at all hours, who acquire albums compulsively, who fall in love with one record per week minimum and cannot resist telling other people—people frankly not that interested—what they should be listening to and why and forcing homemade compilations into their hands.”
