Let's Go (So We Can Get Back) is not your typical rock star biography. For one, Jeff Tweedy would likely resist the rock star label, and indeed, this book will be best enjoyed by those familiar with both his music and his career with Uncle Tupelo and Wilco. But Tweedy's tales are relatable and funny, and his prose comes off as natural, personal, and self-deprecating. His accounts of his many highs and lows (especially the lows; Tweedy has suffered from anxiety and opioid addiction) are affecting but not overwrought. But mostly it's fun to read about an artist who has steadfastly walked his own line, one that happens to define the border between unsung and overexposed.
