Summary

Progressive rock is maligned and misunderstood. Critics hate it. Hipsters scoff at it. Yes Is The Answer is a pointed rebuke to the prog-haters, the first literary collection devoted to the sub-genre. Featuring acclaimed novelists Rick Moody, Wesley Stace, Seth Greenland, Charles Bock, and Joe Meno, as well as musicians Nathan Larson, and Peter Case, Yes Is The Answer is a book that dares to reclaim prog-rock as a subject worthy of serious consideration.
