Josh Ritter's "The Curse"

This month Dial Press will publish Josh Ritter's debut novel, Bright’s Passage, and introduce readers to what listeners of Ritter’s songs have been enjoying for some time. As Poets & Writers contributor Benjamin Percy writes, "Ritter’s songs sometimes feel like full-blooded fables and folk tales, and his novel has a similar vision, the vision of a disturbing and beautiful dream." Ritter's latest CD, So Runs the World Away, from which "The Curse" is taken, was released by Pytheas Recordings in May.
