Ross Simonini is a man of many talents: musician, visual artist, documentarian, secret a cappella maven, and of course interviews editor of The Believer and executive producer of The Organist. Next week sees the release of his first novel, The Book of Formation, which is surely the most oblique biography of Beyoncé you’ll ever read but also, in a sense… not? All we can say for sure is that we hope you’ll come celebrate with us.
