NEW YORK (AP) - A book of previously unreleased Jerry Garcia interviews is coming out this fall to mark the 20th anniversary of his death and the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Grateful Dead.

Hachette Book Group imprint Black Dog & Levanthal announced Tuesday that “Jerry on Jerry” will be published in November.

The book will be edited by Grateful Dead biographer Dennis McNally. The interviews range from Garcia’s memories of childhood to his thoughts on drugs, songwriting and politics.

Garcia died in August 1995 at age 53. Surviving band members are touring this summer.

Daughter Trixie Garcia says the book captures the “fun-loving weirdness and creepy corners” of her father’s interests.

An audio edition featuring more than 8 hours of interviews also will be published in November.
