SKELETON KEY

A Dictionary for Deadheads
by David Shenk and Steve Silberman

“Quite simply, this is the funniest, most lucid account ever put together about those former "Warlocks" of 710 Ashbury St, the Grateful Dead...this book is almost as good as being there. But not quite.”
Whole Earth Review

“An elegantly written, one-size-fits-all passport to Deadhead culture's rich, weird, pageantry.”
Village Voice

“A modern-day Joycean epiphany...colorful, witty and persuasive...One can’t help but be lulled into the feeling that if you’re not a Deadhead, you’re missing out on a good time.”
Wired

“Replete with a healthy sense of humor and an obvious love for its subject...the mix of concrete and the absurd reminds you of the Dead’s music itself.”
Rolling Stone

“This indispensable guide to all things Grateful Dead-related is the only dictionary you can laugh your way straight — or not so straight — through from beginning to end.”
— Matt Groening

— Purchase at Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
