Meanwhile, Sean seeks salvation in a community of eccentrics and outsiders, making musicSpinmagazineonce referred to as ';an art-core mindfuck.' But the closer Sean comes to realizing his musical dream, the further he drifts from his family and himself.By turns heartbreaking and mordantly funny,Songs Only You Knowis an artful, compassionate rendering of the chaos and misadventure of a young man's life.';Few books convey the fever-pitch intensity of youth with such vividness and so little glamorization, or as deeply explore the heartbreaking complexity of family both those we're born into and the ones we choose.'
