Just when I planned to catch up on my 52 Books, 52 Weeks reading or read books submitted for Book Notes, the Belle and Sebastian biography by Paul Whitelaw, Just A Modern Rock Story, arrived in my mailbox.

The first biography of the band, the book filled me in on a group whose history I was largely unfamiliar with, and drove me to re-listen to several of their albums as I read.
