1st Blurb

Some kind words from Nelson Gary about Torment Saint, my Elliott Smith biography, out October 1, 2013:

“Schultz not only personalizes and universalizes Elliott Smith, but illumines the many dimensions we all have within ourselves: father, son, brother, mother, daughter, sister. These points of identity are shown through Torment Saint not to be as contradictory as they may seem or even at all. The brilliance of the author has many manifestations, but it is at its finest in making the sides of personality cohere singularly. The authorial distance balanced with compassion is unsurpassable in Torment Saint. All of the tiny details are rendered with great skill to form a moving, compact encyclopedia for those of us who knew Elliott Smith personally and those of us who did not. Torment Saint is an amazing read for anyone who would like to know the human personality better, including her or his own.”
