The new novel from the bestselling author of Ghostlight and Star of the Sea
The latest novel from Joseph O'Connor is set mainly in England (Luton and London), Ireland and the US. It deals with the formation of a band in the early 80's, their struggle for recognition, playing low dives, living in transit vans etc followed by worldwide success, then the inevitable "artistic differences". The band get together years later in the present day to play a big benefit concert in Dublin for the guitarist, who is critically ill.
The book is wonderfully entertaining, insightful into the world of pop music and often extremely funny.
