REVIEWED BY KYLE SMITH

FICTION

This hilarious first novel tracks the obsession of a Brit music geek who finds his washed-up idol Lance Webster living down the street, runs afoul of the rocker’s security goons and yet befriends him while posing as someone else. Clive, the smitten fan who at 18 had “not a lot to worry about except how much indie the human body can physically absorb” is, at 33, “frustrated, no job, next to zero money, my weakness for alcohol now well into its senility.” Despite that, Clive grows increasingly endearing as his scheme becomes more jumbled than a mosh pit.
