The Miscellaneous Meanderings of a MusicianSatisfaction:
Your Van Is On Fire is a riotous and charming melange of a touring musician’s meandering life. Part memoir, part meditation, part art gallery, it sheds light on the ins, outs and what-have-yous of life inside the mind and van of an artist. The collection includes short essays, poems, and paintings capturing Walker’s early years growing up in a musical family on a Quaker commune, to his discovery of the blues guitar of T-Bone Walker, and his coming of age as an artist. The book centers on his life making music in the southern love triangle of Austin, Nashville, and New Orleans, and includes some hilarious, contemplative, and wild tales from the driver’s seat of the van and other random locales.
