Robert Christgau and Greil Marcus may be among our best rock critics. But if Sheffield keeps writing books as tender and smart as this one, he might end up being judged on a bigger dais.

Even the sweetest moments in Turn Around Bright Eyes, which occur as he is falling in love with Ally, are quietly underscored by a prescient awareness that this very book will one day be a relic – that it has to be.
