Literary Nonfiction. Art. Music. SELF EMPUNISHMENT contains 34 conversations with self-reliant, self-employed, and otherwise self-motivated musicians, technicians, and artists. The interviews, conducted by Brian Walsby, are revealing discussions about what has led these artists to where they are now, what choices have guided their journey, why they do what they do, and how they have made it work for them. Also, plenty of talk about individual successes, failures, lawsuits, rivalries, obstacles, friendships, and memorable events along the way. SELF EMPUNISHMENT by Brian Walsby, beautifully illustrated by the author and featuring an introduction by Bob Durkee, presents this series of interviews in one densely-packed, story-filled volume.
