17 Down, 35 To Go "Mystery Train" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

I have long been fascinated by the writing of Greil Marcus. Mystery Train is Marcus at his best, collecting his profiles of The Band, Sly Stone, Elvis Presley and others, and examining where their music and popular culture intersect. In its fifth edition, Mystery Train reads as if it was written yesterday, and is as much about American culture as rock and roll as Marcus traces the roots of modern rock music through the blues.
