The 2nd edition of Joshua Kloke’s debut book Escape Is At Hand is now available for pre-order!
Joshua Kloke spent his young adult life following The Tragically Hip around the world. From hockey arenas in Canada to small clubs in the United States and Europe, Kloke immersed himself in the band’s deep back catalogue and intense live shows and eventually turned into someone as commonplace in rock ‘n’ roll as the frontman or the roadie: the obsessed super-fan.
Every gig brought forth an opportunity to learn not just about the band but the world around him. Though The Tragically Hip were cultural idols in Canada and loved by millions, they helped Kloke carve his own path with his own rules on how to truly become a fan of the band.
Part memoir, part critical analysis and part examination of The Tragically Hip’s career, Escape is at Hand is a book not just for fans of Kingston’s favourite sons but for anyone who has ever fallen in love with a song and not wanted it to end.
