Stone Arabia

Bookseller Recommendation

Stone Arabia

“If one of the core values of rock n roll is authenticity, is the truest rock star one who doesn't have an audience? This book probes that question through Nik Worth, a prolific recording artist and meticulous chronicler of an imaginary rock career that only his sister is fully aware of. A fascinating interrogation of art, audience, and family dynamics.”

Description

Stone Arabia is about family, obsession,memory, and the urge to create—in isolation, at the margins of ourwinner-take-all culture.

In thesibling relationship, “there are no first impressions, no seductions, nogetting to know each other,” says Denise Kranis. For her and her brother Nik,now in their forties, no relationship is more significant. They grew up in LosAngeles in the late seventies and early eighties. Nik was always the artist,always wrote music, always had a band. Now he makes his art in private,obsessively documenting the work, but never testing it in the world. Deniseremains Nik’s most passionate and acute audience, sometimes his only audience.She is also her family’s first defense against the world’s fragility. Friendsdie, their mother’s memory and mind unravel, and the news of global catastropheand individual tragedy haunt Denise. When her daughter Ada decides to make afilm about Nik, everyone’s vulnerabilities seem to escalate.
