Great moments in rock 'n' roll. Everyone has at least one. For three years, Joel Orff collected people's stories, illustrated them, and posted them on his web site. Though several of these comics feature well-known musicians, they aren't necessarily about music. They may be life-defining experiences, or they may be small and sublime occurrences that the narrator has never forgotten, or moments that they would have liked to have forgotten, but couldn't, because they made too good of a story. Nominated for the YALSA 2004 Popular Paperbacks Young Adult booklist, Strum and Drang is a funny and sometimes poignant book about people struggling with and celebrating their circumstances, often through unlikely forms of self-expression.
