Eamon McGrath's music has taken him around the world and back home to Canada many times, and those experiences have been channelled into the singer-songwriter's debut book. Titled Berlin-Warszawa Express, the printed pages will hit shelves on May 10 via ECW Press.
The publisher's description explains that the literary effort finds McGrath fictionalizing "experiences from his life and the lives of his peers to seek out meaning and significance in the tumultuous and emotional experience of living on the road" — drawing on booze and techno-fuelled nights in Berlin, punk squats in Prague and trips through dark alleys and dive bars in Vienna for inspiration.
In support of the upcoming book, McGrath will embark on a string of shows closer to home this spring. The jaunt kicks off in Toronto on May 6 and will head west before circling back and wrapping up in Wakefield, QC, on May 20.
