Praise

“Wildly entertaining… Breathtaking…Unforgettable…Tweedy’s music has never shied away from darkness, but he’s also never been afraid to celebrate joy. The same is true with this remarkable memoir—it’s a wonderful book, alternately sorrowful and triumphant, and it’s a gift not just to his fans, but to anyone who cares about American rock music.”
NPR.org

Let’s Go is especially enlightening, a rock’n’roll book that quietly dismantles what we expect from rock’n’roll books.”
Pitchfork

“Illuminating…a compelling portrait of an artist whose everyman nature proves to be anything but a front.”
—AV Club

“[Tweedy] succeeds in entertaining and oddly revealing ways, moving with shape-shifting ease from wry self-effacement to what he calls Midwestern sarcasm to naked confession.”
Chicago Tribune

“Laced with funny anecdotes… Readers might sometimes wonder at Tweedy’s lyrics, but in his playing, singing and writing, whether in solo efforts, in collaboration with Wilco or in his producing other artists, we know we have something to treasure.”
Associated Press

Let’s Go (So We Can Get Back) reads more like a collection of humorously confessional essays by David Sedaris than a conventional rock memoir.”
Uproxx

“Engaging and self-questioning.”
—The Philadelphia Inquirer

“The Wilco front man has just written one of the best and most revealing memoirs in years…Let’s Go is a warts-and-all addiction memoir, but luckily it is much more than that, too. It’s also a genuinely moving ode to his wife and two sons (one of whom, Spencer, is the drummer in his side project Tweedy), and an impassioned and often quite funny firsthand account of a music geek’s coming of age.”
The Ringer

“Though Tweedy’s lyrics tend to be oblique, his new memoir is anything but.”
—Men’s Journal

“By turns self-deprecating, sincere, hilarious, and harrowing.”
The Boston Globe

“A funny and candid addition to the rock-memoir genre”.
Newsweek

“Funny and frank.”
—Entertainment Weekly

“Engaging and self-questioning.”
Philadelphia Inquirer

“Tweedy writes movingly about his parents, his wife and children, and his desire to find an artistic home for his band. Thoughtful, earnest reflections on family, creative integrity, and a life in music.”
Kirkus

“Tweedy will delight fans by sharing such tidbits as his favorite moment in the Wilco documentary and how a Noah’s Ark analogy powered the Grammy-winning A Ghost Is Born album. Tweedy tells a wonderfully unassuming story of a music-filled life.
—Publishers Weekly
