Praise for Tangled Up in Tunes:
“Howard’s writing of this time period has an On The Road quest feel to it.”
-          Jonathan Ames, creator of the HBO series Bored To Death; Author of The Extra Man
“Tangled Up In Tunes is terrific storytelling…suspenseful, I couldn’t wait to read what came next.”
-          Ann Hood author of Somewhere off The Coast Of Maine

  "Howard Weiner's new book is a smart, funny, informative and ultimately touching accomplishment, a classic American bildungsroman with Jerry Garcia and Bob Dylan as the surprising emotional engines."

-          Robert Polito, author of Savage Art: A Biography of Jim Thompson and Hollywood & God

“Howard “Catfish” Weiner is a hilarious Dylan-head with heart.”
-          Susan Shapiro author of Lighting Up

"Tangled Up In Tunes recalls the energy and "carpe diem” attitude of the Beat Generation. Howard’s vivid prose style allows the reader to experience the improvisational thrill of American music."
-          Lauren Cardon,  Postdoctoral Fellow at Tulane with a PhD in American Literature

"Tangled Up in Tunes is a road memoir like no other...The author loves his lobsters, Greyhound buses, and's a romp through the best music there is. Memphis, Vegas, Hibbing, and Allentown are some of the stops on this never ending tour. I loved it.
            -    Hamlin J. Endicott Owner, Grateful Dead Books
