OCT The Court, 9 Kingley Street, Soho, London
Come and meet author and GQ Editor in Chief, Dylan Jones in conversation with Ludovic Hunter-Tilney of the FT about his latest book "The Witchita Lineman" – Searching in the Sun for the World's Greatest Unfinished Song.
"It might seem hubristic to write a book about one song, no matter how good it is, but Dylan Jones’s lively and revelatory study of Jimmy Webb’s impossibly moving ballad Wichita Lineman amply justifies its existence.
Made popular by Glen Campbell, the song was recorded in an unfinished form, but, as Jones authoritatively explores its creation, reception and near-mythic aftermath, one understands why none other than Bob Dylan referred to it as the greatest song ever written." – The Guardian.
