Wire contributor Adam Harper will launch his forthcoming book Heaven Is Real: John Maus And The Truth Of Pop later this month. The 64 page book is the first publication from micro-publishing house Precinct, and looks at language and truth in Maus's pop-music-about-pop-music. It includes an extended essay by Harper (an early version of which was published on his blog in 2009), a discography, and interview with Maus conducted by Wayne Daly & Grégory Ambos. Launch event (with talk by Harper): London X Marks The Bökship, 27 July, 7pm. John Maus was interviewed by Joseph Stannard in The Wire 329.
