Product Details


“Rapkin will make you care about collegiate a cappella… Very funny.”


“Finally, a journalist with the courage to investigate the cutthroat world of college a cappella… Rapkin has the perfectly bemused and giddy tone to tell these stories with the reverence they deserve.”
New York Post

“A fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at an underappreciated musical subculture.” — Booklist

“Rapkin’s book reveals a world with as much discord as harmony.”

“Look out, barbershop quartets. Mickey Rapkin uncovers the dirty truth behind collegiate a cappella groups.” — Marie Claire

“Contrary to popular opinion, there’s more to a cappella than mere song. In an often funny snapshot of collegiate life, Mickey Rapkin exposes a broad range of gritty issues, including drug use and breakdowns. He is a fresh new voice in journalistic nonfiction.”
Alexandra Robbins, bestselling author of Pledged: the Secret Life of Sororities

“Mickey Rapkin has captured the world of a cappella—a subculture that can claim members as far afield as Cole Porter and Osama bin Laden — in all its funny, earnest, and thoroughly strange glory. He nails it.”
David Rakoff, best-selling author of Dont Get Too Comfortable and Fraud: Essays

“Hilarious and very moving.”
Micdy Kaling, co-star and associate producer of NBC’s “The Office”

“Like a Christopher Guest movie in book form, Pitch Perfect is hilariously harrowing and embarrassingly suspenseful. You don’t have to survive four years of the a cappella experience to appreciate Rapkin’s detailed look into the triumphs and tragedies of these three groups. But if you have, if you know what it is to live on a college campus akin to Lord of the Flies set to the Eurhythmics, Pitch Perfect will not only strike a chord, it will slam down directly on it.”
Sloane Crosley, author of I Was Told There’d Be Cake
