Product description

Review

?Lane?s poetical powers of description reveal themselves? a jet-black, strangely plausible imaginary chapter in rock mythology? The Times ?Powerful first novel? the sort of rock ?n? roll novel that contains all the elements you might expect ? sex, alcohol, desperation and suicidal despair ? without ever resorting to clich? or stereotype? Gay Times ?A dark, precise, insinuating novel that rewrites pop history into something like a perfect wish come disconcertingly true. Joel Lane

s prose manages the impressive trick of being both reportorial and objective, and as feverishly romantic as a piece of fan mail? Dennis Cooper 'Joel Lane's debut is that rare thing: a novel about the darker edges of the rock business that carries the stamp of absolute authenticity (New Statesman)

Lane's poetical powers of description reveal themselves... a jet-black, strangely plausible imaginary chapter in rock mythology (The Times)
