Fantagraphics is proud to present these never-before-collected interviews with various pop culture giants conducted by journalist Kristine McKenna. From music legends like James Brown, Captain Beefheart, Ray Charles, George Clinton, Leonard Cohen, Bo Diddley, Willie Dixon, Al Green, Merle Haggard, Brian Eno, Nico, Iggy Pop, Yoko Ono, Lou Reed, Nina Simone, Artie Shaw, Tom Waits, Neil Young and Pete Townshend, to noted beat authors William Burroughs, Allen Ginsburg and others, this collection reveals numerous insights into some of the greatest artistic minds of the 20th Century. In addition to writers and musicians, McKenna interviews idiosyncratic filmmakers like Blue Velvet's David Lynch and cultural curiosities like folk hero Howard Finster. Plus, each interview is accompanied by a portrait of each interviewee by the cream of the cartoonist crop. Some of the cartoonists included in this Cultural Who's-Who are R. Crumb, Arnold Roth, Jim Woodring, Jaime Hernandez, Chris Ware, Bill Griffith, Gilbert Hernandez, Al Columbia, Seth, Peter Bagge and many more! Kristine McKenna is an L.A. based author who's been writing about art, film, music and literature since 1977. Trained as a visual artist, she shifted her attentions to journalism in the mid '70s, when she became involved with L.A.'s punk rock community.

"This book gathers fascinating titans of cool and reveals levels of honesty rarely seen in normal press exchanges." – Bizarre

"Book of Changes is a panorama view of relentless coolness." – Pop Matters

"If there's any doubt that Kristine McKenna is one of the most gifted journalists in America, this moving collection should put that doubt to rest." – Joe Frank
