Red Hot + Blue

"Red Hot + Blue is an ingenious literary mixtape ... Garrison's haunting meditation on the songs themselves, the artists involved, and, crucially, the complex life story of Cole Porter, is an invaluable work of cultural and musical history. I loved it."

            -- Bill Hayes, author of Insomniac City: New York, Oliver Sacks, and Me

Red Hot + Blue illuminates music's capacity to find us, transform us, and help us make sense of our historical moment. Blending memoir and cultural history, the book is the portrait of an album, a pandemic, and a young gay man's coming of age in the era of both.
