forthcoming April 2022: UNDER the ELM


“WORLD GONE MAD offers welcome respite in these strange days. Beck brings back the beloved characters of SUMMER TOUR, this time the story told from a slightly different perspective. We follow the kids as they navigate senior year of high school, face adversities and tragedy, and survive the effects of a global pandemic, all while holding close to the phamily they’ve found in each other. Community has been the most important aspect of being a Phish phan in 2020, and Elizabeth Beck has captured that spirit in WORLD GONE MAD. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.” Elisa Allechant, SiriusXM Host Phish Radio

“Beck weaves music, art, and memories in this heartfelt coming-of-age story.” Jessica Topper, author of LOUDER THAN LOVE


“As long as there are teenagers falling in love with music, books, art, and each other, there will be coming of age stories like Elizabeth Beck’s Summer Tour. Hop on summer Phish tour with Sam and his ‘family’ as they travel the country in an RV named Suby Greenberg, learning how to get by, stay high, and navigate the maze of American adolescence.” -Peter Conners, author of Growing Up Dead: The Hallucinated Confessions of a Teenage Deadhead

Elizabeth Beck’s debut work of fiction, Summer Tour, released June 2020 has received outstanding reviews. The novel follows a group of kids on Phish Tour Summer ’19. Written by a phan who saw her first show in 1992, this piece of fiction reads like non-fiction, including setlists and details about the actual shows performed by Phish the summer of 2019 culminating in the awesome and awful experience of the Rescue Squad at YEMSG. Reading this novel is the next best thing to going to a show. Available in paperback for $20 and Kindle for $5.55 (of course).
