Product description

Review

I wanted to live in this book as it raced along. (Kim Gordon)

One of the most acute, affecting and aphoristic novels of recent years . . . Hallucinatory and haunting. (Guardian)

To say I enjoyed it would be a massive understatement; it's an incredible book, savage and tender and poignant and mad. (Lisa McInerney, author of The Glorious Heresies)

Captures the terrific, obsessive, ludicrous pomposity of every music fan's youth in an utterly definitive way. (Irvine Welsh)

Full of music and mystery and myth . . . dark, dreamy and delirious. (Herald)

I couldn't really like anybody who doesn't love this book. It's the sound of young Scotland distilled forever. (Andrew O'Hagan)

A magnificent debut novel. (Wire)

I don't often recommend a novel after reading only a hundred pages, but I will make an exception for This Is Memorial Device by David Keenan. . . . It captures the utter seriousness, the all-consuming belief, the sacrifice to art, the veneration of ideas that was as true for a shonky band in Airdrie in 1984 as it was for David Bowie in 1967, or Man Ray in 1915, or Gustav Mahler in 1884. (Kenny Farquharson The Times)

Entirely exhilarating, constantly threatening to spin free of its axis and yet always hauled back by its author's command of his tune. (i Independent)

I've never read a book quite like this . . . A rich, fun, honest, tender and rare gift, everyone should read it. (Cosey Fanni Tutti)
