Great works of literature have inspired many musicians, but that inspiration does occasionally flow the other way, with writers drawing from pop music. Nick Hornby’s novel “High Fidelity” comes to mind.

One young writer here in Atlanta is about to release a book inspired in part by the pop singer Kesha. It’s titled “All Glitter, Everything” and author Laura Relyea joined WABE’s Myke Johns to talk about finding strength and deeper meaning in the singer’s pop persona. 

“All Glitter, Everything” is available through Deer Bear Wolf Press. Relyea will be launching the book at the Big House on Ponce on Saturday, March 14.
