Because we like keeping tabs on D.C.’s indie-rock diaspora: Nathan Larson—-who played in D.C. bands Swiz and Shudder to Think and who these days is based in New York, where he pens movie scores and records as A Camp with his wife Nina Persson (of Cardigans fame)—-has written a book. It’s called The Dewey Decimal System. It’s “the first book in a literary-noir series featuring an obsessive-compulsive protagonist in a ravaged New York City.” It comes out in May, but if you pre-order it here, you’ll pay a bit more but Larson will sign and number it and it’ll arrive on your doorstep in March. It’s a noir noir noir noir world.
