Jesse Michaels (Operation Ivy/Classics Of Love) to release novel “Whispering Bodies”

Jesse Michaels, best known for fronting the iconic ska punk band Operation Ivy, will be releasing a novel next month entitled “Whispering Bodies: A Roy Belkin Disaster.”

Pre-orders are available on, who give a short synopsis of the book:

“Roy Belkin, a reclusive man, Internet troll and neurotic ritualist stars In Whispering Bodies, the debut novel from Jesse Michaels. Belkin must begin each day with the task he calls The Service: visiting Christian chat-rooms to reply to users innocent questions with mocking answers. . .At forty-seven, balding, and mildly agoraphobic, Belkin is a man without direction. He rarely leaves his apartment (he refers to the outside world as The Pounding), and when he must leave, he meticulously recounts the day in his Thunder Book; a journal where he lists all that repulsed him that day.”

Jesse’s current band, Classics of Love, released their debut album in 2012 via Asian Man Records.
