Review

'Full of the most amazing characters and is all told in a warm, dreamlike tone. Highly recommended.'
-- Word Magazine

'Halberstadt does a good job at recreating the gritty urban ambience of Pomus's chaotic existence...a lively biography.'
-- Sunday Times

'Halberstadt's concise, evocative biography...with material for a film-noir plot on every page ... splendid.'
-- Christopher Hawtree, Daily Telegraph

'The author immaculately fulfils both the "life" and "times" aspects of his brief.'
-- Independent

'a story of a remarkable character with all the pace and verve you would expect from a veteran showbiz journalist'
-- Robert Sandall

`A great biography with the qualities of a novel, by turns
informative, moving and life-affirming.' -- Record Collector

`Tales of street violence, drug addled musicians and corporate betrayal ring familiar in this engaging tribute to an unlikely hero.' -- Word Magazine

Book Description

The first biography of one of the key figures in the history of rock 'n' roll: the colourful and legendary songwriter Doc Pomus, who wrote such beloved songs as 'Lonely Avenue', 'Save the Last Dance for Me' and 'A Teenager in Love'.
