Rush’s Neil Peart continues his prolific writing with the forthcoming release of his fifth book, “Far And Away: A Prize Every Time,” due out May 1.

Here’s the press blurb on it:

From the ups and downs of a professional artist to the birth of a child, this revealing narrative recounts 22 adventures from rock’s foremost drummer, biker enthusiast, husband and father.

Both playful and insightful, Peart’s love of drumming and the open road weaves throughout the stories as Neil explores horizons that are both physical and spiritual, sharing his observations about nature, society, and the self.
