Read full description of the books No Sleep 'til Sudbury:A refreshingly no-holds-barred narrative look at what it was like growing up in the 80s as a hard rock and heavy metal fan in a small northern Ontario town. The rock history is here and some academic treatise is included as well, but these aspects are uniquely woven together with personal experiences and biting commentary to make No Sleep ‘til Sudbury a highly entertaining observation of the power of musical nostalgia as a pop cultural force.
Read information about the authorBrent Jensen is a Canadian freelance writer and rock critic who lives in the Toronto area. He is the author of No Sleep 'Til Sudbury: Adventures in 80s Hard Rock and Heavy Metal Deconstruction (Edwards Press, 2012), in which he reflects on his teenage life and the important role music played as a means to make sense of the world that surrounded him as he navigated the challenges of small town adolescence. As Jensen puts it, "It's the rock and roll book I could never find in the bookstore".
In his newest book, Leftover People: A Journey Through Post-Rock & Roll America (Edwards Press 2014), Jensen recounts in graphic detail the surreal events that take place during a promotional book tour of the southeastern United States in support of No Sleep 'Til Sudbury. As Jensen comes into personal contact with a colorful assortment of intensely dedicated music fans that make up his readership over the course of the tour, he is forced to consider the deeper implications of his own fandom for the music of his youth through that of his readers. Leftover People balances tales of the tour's hazy escapades from city to city against a darker subtext illuminating the eternal struggle between the head and the heart, and of living in the moment versus living in the past.
Jensen maintains Facebook and Twitter pages to network with his friends and readers.
