Police Guitarist Andy Summers Releasing Book of Short Stories

The Police guitarist Andy Summers is ready to share some short stories. He’s set to drop “Fretted and Moaning: Short Stories,” a collection of 45 short stories, on August 19th.

According to the press release, Andy, “has written short stories ever since the halcyon days of the Police, and for the first time 45 are collected together in a hardback book, available in three editions.” 

The announcement adds, “The 45 stories in ‘Fretted and Moaning’ are as smart, funny and wry as the author and his music,” noting, “Each one involves a guitar and guitarist in some way, and introduces a cast of characters who may be familiar to readers who’ve followed Andy’s career over the past five decades or more.”

Of the three editions, two will be signed, with one of them including an “exclusive, signed, numbered and limited Giclée art print” of an Andy Summers original Telecaster guitar photograph.
