Michael Nesmith’s eclectic, electric life spans his star-making role on The Monkees, his invention of the music video, and his critical contributions to movies, comedy, and the world of virtual reality.

Above all, his is a seeker’s story, a pilgrimage in search of a set of principles to live by. That search took Nesmith from a childhood in Dallas, where his single mother Bette invented Liquid Paper, to the set of The Monkees in Los Angeles; to the heart of swinging London with John Lennon and Jimi Hendrix; and to an unexpected oasis of brilliance in the Santa Fe desert, where his friendships with Douglas Adams and Los Alamos scientists would point him toward the power of the infinite and the endless possibilities of human connection. This funny, thoughtful, self-aware book is a window onto an unexpected life, inflected at every turn by the surprising candor and absurdist humor of an American original.

Opening Infinite Tuesday is like stepping into the world of Michael Nesmith, where something curious is always unfolding, and where riffs on everything from bands to dogs to the nature of reality make for an endlessly engaging journey.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A memoir that promises to be a psychedelic, nostalgic trip for many fans…The artist recounts his financial struggles, an undiagnosed disease that almost crippled him, drug use, and his ‘bromance’ with Jack Nicholson. At the end of the book, readers will be torn between loving him as an artist and admiring his resilience.”

    People magazine

  • “As a writer, Nesmith is practical without being conventional…He also abstains from using his pen to settle scores, something from which other celebrity memoirists could learn… [Infinite Tuesday is] a nonlinear realm to which [Nesmith] is a distinctly likable, erudite guide.”

    Washington Post

  • “Reads like the chronicle of a relentless seeker.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • “This selectively revealing, insightful memoir casts the cerebral Monkee as a spiritual seeker and self-deprecating visionary. Popular culture has barely revealed the tip of the iceberg that is Nesmith….A book—and a life—unlike any other in rock.”
