BILL MORRISSEY AND KNOPF PUBLISHING SIGN BOOK DEAL
Alfred A. Knopf, Inc. have recently signed an agreement with Bill Morrissey to publish his recently finished novel tentatively titled Edson. Edson is a fictional town in New Hampshire where most of the action in the book takes place. Singer- songwriter Bill Morrissey is most noted for his critically acclaimed albums on Philo/Rounder Records. Bill's songwriting has always had special literary qualities and it seemed a natural progression for him to write a book.
The book is scheduled for a March 1996 release. Also in March 1996, Philo/Rounder will release a brand new album of Bill's. Following these releases, Bill will do a three month book and album tour with a backing trio.
Normally we would include a nice quote from the artist here, however, Bill is currently unreachable for comment as he is fly fishing in Alaska.
