Memphis musician, songwriter, filmmaker Tav Falco will be at Burke’s Book Store on Thursday, December 1st, from 4:30 to 6:00 PM to read from and sign copies of her new book, Ghost Behind the Sun: Splendor, Enigma and Death (Mondo Memphis, Volume One (Creation Books, $24.95 paperback). This event coincides with the Cooper Young Neighborhood First Thursday Night Out.

“Mondo Memphis, the singular hybrid that is…Falco’s roman noir/history of Memphis, steeps the reader in the most occult nectars of a place, a city evoked in line after tumescent line of haunted prose…Plunge into this wealthy and eccentric masterpiece and dissolve yourself for delicious eternities in mythic Memphis.”

–Guy Maddin, director of The Saddest Music in the Worlda


Tav Falco began his musical career as a backup dancer for Jim Dickinson’s Mud Boy and the Neutrons. He was one of the founding members of Panther Burns, one of Memphis’ most influential punk/folk/rock/soul bands. He now lives in Vienna and continues to make music and films. This is his first book.

If there are any questions concerning this event, please contact Corey Mesler at 901-278-7484.

  2. Ever’ since he invented himself, you’d think he was capable. My bet is he’s not even a wolf in a sheep’s clothing: he’s a poseur who thinks people think he’s a wolf. Guess again Tab, baby.
    You can’t even howl.
