Lost Joy

This site is dedicated to serving as a place to announce a few upcoming events focusing on the work of Tom Adelman, AKA Camden Joy.  Adelman, under the pen name Camden Joy, first attained notoriety in the mid-nineties for his New York City postering projects and street manifestos. His work, which blurs the lines between music criticism, memoir, and fiction, has appeared in periodicals such as the Village Voice, the Boston Phoenix, SF Weekly, and McSweeney’s and on This American Life. In 2002, Joy was heralded by Rolling Stone as “one of the great rock writers of our age.” He is the author of five novels—including The Last Rock Star Book or Liz Phair: A Rant—and Lost Joy, a collection of stories, pamphlets, and posters. Recently, Adelman has authored two books on baseball under his own name, and under the name of Camden Joy has been performing a series of songs inspired by the 2005 Presidential Coins Act.
