The Celestial Café covers the frontman's online diaries from 2002-2006

Belle & Sebastian‘s Stuart Murdoch has released a book.

The Celestial Café is a collection of the frontman’s online diaries from 2002-2006.

The edited assortment will cover the recording and touring of the group’s ‘Dear Catastrophe Waitress’ and ‘The Life Pursuit’ albums, with Murdoch promising that the book is devoid of all the trademark excesses of rock diaries.

Available through Pomona Books and on Belle and Sebastian’s December UK tour, the book will go on general release in early 2011.

Meanwhile, Murdoch will read from the book and answer questions at Belle and Sebastian’s ATP-curated festival on December 12.
