Since the 1960s, Massachusetts-based author Peter Guralnick has written extensively about American music. His books include the definitive biographies of Sam Cooke, Sam Phillips, and Elvis Presley. In late 2020, Guralnick published Looking to Get Lost: Adventures in Music & Writing. The book features intimate, insightful stories about Chuck Berry, Ray Charles, Dick Curless, Merle Haggard, Howlin’ Wolf, Skip James, Jerry Lee Lewis, Bill Monroe, Tammy Wynette, and over a dozen other musicians. During this interview, Guralnick discusses his interactions with artists he has profiled and his motivations and goals in writing about them.
