Tori is not presently on tour.
Tori once described Boys for Pele as a sonic novel, and soon there will be a book based on the album. The good people at 33 1/3, who produce a series of nonfiction books that examine individual albums, will release a volume in 2008 or 2009 devoted to Boys for Pele. The author will be Elizabeth Merrick, whose past work includes her novel Girly and an anthology of short stories called This is Not Chick Lit. In the meantime, check out the full list of upcoming 33 1/3 books.
In her blog, Merrick writes:
It’s true: I’m writing a book about Boys for Pele for the amazing 33 1/3 series that Continuum Press publishes. How much fun is that? So fun.
I hate it when people (especially women) roll their eyes at that album, saying, “Oh god I loved Little Earthquakes but Pele is so indulgent.” If that’s you and I’m offending you, sorry! Come to a writing class, plug into your intuitive brain, and then listen to it again and see whatcha think. I think that response has everything to do with blocking out the intuition. If you hate it for other reasons, let me know, however—always open to things I haven’t heard a million times over.
Thanks, Rocket_ships, for staying up late to send this one in.
