Reviews

Praise for CASSETTE FROM MY EX: "Anyone who understands the obsessive attention to detail, the time it took to collate, select, and edit the content of a perfectly executed mix tape, or just someone who appreciated the rhythms and nuances of such extraordinary artifacts will treasure this collection of stories, comfortable and secure in the knowledge that such exquisite efforts were not made in vain and indeed there was a time when a humble cassette tape was perhaps the greatest gift of all."- Shirley Manson, lead singer of Garbage ..".I think that "Cassette From My Ex: Stories and Soundtracks of Lost Loves" is going to be the gift book of the season."--KEXP radio "I challenge any mix-maker to look at these glorious Maxell, Fuji, and TDK cassettes without feeling the past's dizzying tug.... This collection of nervously-written liner notes and carefully wrought playlists recalls the thrill and anxiety that came with making a tape, and by extension, with falling in love."--The New Yorker's Book Bench "Few things induce nostalgia more than obsolete technology, especially obsolete technology associated with romantic crushes, like the analog mix-tape. For his new book, "Cassette From My Ex," Jason Bitner--co-creator of "Found" magazine--asked more than 60 writers, artists, and others to share their most memorable mix-tape experiences. What results is a bittersweet look at a phenomenon uniquely suited to a format that no longer exists."--The A.V. club "Groovy-looking book for music geeks from "Found" magazine's Jason Bitner. Check out the magnificent contribution by The Magnetic Fields' Claudia Gonson from her high school boyfriend, John, who - along with friend and bandmate Stephin Merritt - she thanks for her musical education."--Merge Records ""Cassette From My Ex: Stories and Soundtracks of Lost Loves" is a wonderful, nostalgic, charmingly obsessive ode to the mixtape -- in particular, to mixtapes made by ex-lovers."--Flavorwire
