Rush drummer Neil Peart has written his sixth book. On the band's website, it says, "Far and Near brings together reflections from another three years of an artist’s life as he celebrates seasons, landscapes, characters, travels roads and trails, receives honors, climbs mountains, composes and performs music. With passionate insight, wry humor, and an adventurous spirit, once again Peart offers a collection of open letters that take readers on the road, behind the scenes, and into the inner workings of an ever-inquisitive mind."

The first run, limited to 500 copies and available only to the band's fan club members, contains the stories he posts on his website. Each one is hand numbered and comes with a signed bookplate.
