James Yorkston's tour diaries offer a mix of deadpan humour, wide-eyed wonder and the romantic absurdity of playing music for a living. By turns poignant, witty and philosophical the reader experiences the never ending highs and lows of pubs, clubs and theatres and the endless disorientations on the merry go round of live touring. "It's Lovely to be Here" is a once-in-a-generation behind-the-scenes account of the music world seen from the eyes of a working singer-songwriter where the realities of the minstrel life are confounded and compacted into the on-demand bustle of twenty-first Century Britain. Filled with bathos and written in Yorkston's intimate style the diaries are an affecting account of liquor, sleeplessness and the beauty of song. A section of the book originally appeared in "Loops Domino & Faber's" twice-yearly music journal.
