Rocker Jack White is getting literary - he and his partners at record label Third Man Records have launched a publishing offshoot. Third Man Books will launch with the release of Language Lessons: Volume I, which features a book of poetry and prose and two vinyl albums of "jazz, psychedelic-punk, poetry, blues and pop". The set, which will feature pieces by Dale Ray Phillips, CD Wright and Adrian Matejka, will be available from 5 August (14). White and his associates have released a statement to coincide with the announcement of the new venture. It reads: "Third Man Books, like Language Lessons, will be fearless, imaginative, and eclectic. We hope to be a welcome addition to what is already a very compelling and thrilling independent American literary landscape."
