Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Please Take Me off the Guest List is the latest in a series of creative collaborations by New York city artists and friends Zachary Lipez, Nick Zinner, and Stacy Wakefield. Zachary Lipez's essays recount his adventures as a bartender, drug abuser, bookstore clerk, metal fan, miserable adolescent, and relentless skirt chaser. His inimitable voice walks the line between self-loathing and hedonistic delight and is biting, moving, and extremely funny. Nick Zinner's photographs evoke the world he travels with his band the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. His always present camera documents decadent late nights as well as blissfully fresh sun-dappled landscapes. His images are rich in narrative and unwaveringly optimistic. The book is edited and designed by their longtime collaborator, book artist Stacy Wakefield. The unique structure she has devised for this book presents Zachary's essays as separate books-within-the-book while the stories built by the photographs course through and around them. Zachary, Nick, and Stacy have produced three previous books together: No Seats on the Party Car, Slept in Beds, and I Hope You Are All Happy Now.

Synopsis:

In this outstanding collaboration, Nick Zinner's photographs evoke the world he travels with his band the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, while Zachary Lipez's essays recount his adventures as a bartender, drug abuser, bookstore clerk, metal fan, miserable adolescent, and relentless skirt chaser. The book is designed by Zinner's and Lipez's longtime collaborator, book artist Stacy Wakefield.

Synopsis:

The latest and best creative collaboration by Nick Zinner (of the band Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Zachary Lipez, and Stacy Wakefield.

Synopsis:

"For those who've never had the opportunity to party like a rock star and felt like they were missing out, Please Take Me Off the Guest List' may very well smooth over those regrets."

--The New York Times T Magazine, Men's Fashion issue

"It's a gorgeous book, but there's more to it than that. Wakefield is a designer; she juxtaposed Zinner's photos with Lipez's stories of life in the rock and roll gutter in a really unique way. There is literally no way you could make this book into a satisfying e-book. It's a beautiful artifact."
