The Post reported this morning that omnipresent alt-country singer, prolific rapper, erstwhile blogger, and tireless Daily Intel commenter (plus "emo rocker," according to the musicologists at the Post), Ryan Adams, has just signed a deal with Brooklyn's Akashic Books to publish a "still-untitled collection of prose." Adams's Website says he's working on a "forthcoming book of poetry" (and a new album and a gallery show of his paintings, apparently) — so are we to assume these are two different projects? And didn't he once post part of a novel on his site also? Will he author a new book every eight months? Joyce Carol Oates may finally have some competition!
