Rough Trade Books has introduced its 35th version: It’s Going to Be a Bright New Day: Would You Rather, with Bonnie Prince Billy, by Lanny writer Max Porter. The e-book, which is accessible for pre-order, finds Porter taking part in “Would You Rather” with Will Oldham, asking him questions of desire on topics like music, delicacies, and extra.
“It’s Going to be a Bright New Day: Would You Rather, with Bonnie Prince Billy is Max Porter asking Will Oldham questions,” Rough Trade Books’ description of the e-book reads. “Will Oldham has to say whether he would rather one thing, or another. Many topics are covered, including music, sex, cuisine, literature and travel. Some people believe that the Would You Rather format is better suited to a long car journey than a pamphlet, but we disagree. It works just fine on the page. More than that, it’s very interesting and occasionally profound.”
Oldham launched I Made a Place, his newest album as Bonnie “Prince” Billy, again in 2019.
