The Last Rock Star Book, Or, Liz Phair, a Rant

The Last Rock Star Book, Or, Liz Phair, a Rant Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Camden Joys hero cant wrap up the quickie bio of rock star Liz Phair hes been commissioned to write. Instead, he finds himself recounting the troubled events of his own life. His ex-girlfriend (who might be the illegitimate daughter of dead Rolling Stone Brian Jones); Liz Phair (whom hes never met); and a mystery girl in an old newspaper photo all start to blur together in his mind. If he could just get closer to his subject, maybe hed have a shot at the distinction he feels he deserves, before the assignment spins out of control . Hilarious and compelling, Joys novel is a captivating read as well as a powerful meditation on celebrity and obsession, and is rapidly assuming cult classic status. “I know of no one who writes with more passion and more soul,” says Dave Eggers.
