Zephaniah Stringfield is a restless person.
We both grew up in Berkeley, where I could be content to stay forever. Zephaniah keeps moving from place to place. A few times he's talked like he was going to settle down, but the winds change and he's somewhere else.
Whenever he comes through town, he plays me his new songs. He's got that ability like Woody Guthrie had, to write a tune for every place he's traveled. It seems like he pulled them out of the sky or peeled them from off the walls. He can turn around a well-known phrase and make it his own. He can tell an old story like it just happened for the first time.
I hope you enjoy this collection as much as I do.
