Recent studies showing a decline in reading, especially among young people, have many writers and publishers worried, yet few seem likely to ditch what Ebershoff called ''a process from a different era.'' There are powerful incentives to stick with the old way.

In 2002, while holding court in his office overlooking N.Y.C.'s Madison Square Park, David Barker -- a friendly young Englishman editing a series of chapbooks on contemporary American fiction -- decided that it might be nice to produce a set of books focused not on specific novels, but on specific albums.
A motley collection of musicians, critics, writers, and miscellaneous hangers-on would each devote 25,000 words to whatever record happened to fascinate them, from Dusty Springfield to Joy Division to DJ Shadow.
But it wasn't until the English writer Andy Miller's manuscript for the Kinks' Village Green Preservation Society landed on his desk that Barker was convinced he was on the right track.

 Notes on "Paperback Writer" and "Rain" (PW_AND_R)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
They went straight to work on what was to become the _Revolver_ album in early April '66, and the two songs on this single, released in June (two months ahead of the album) were recorded just a couple weeks into the new sessions.
- The subject matter, musical style, and recording technique of both "Paperpack Writer" (PW) and "Rain" (R) make them as qualitatively different from what we heard on the album which preceded them as they pressage the album which was yet to follow.
Take 2 of this song provides a perfect proof of this, where you can here them, just before the actual count-in singing the word 'Paperback...' in a nervously tentative stage whisper.
