    Espedair Street

    Written by Iain Banks

    This is a coming of age story set against the backdrop of 70s and 80s British rock & roll. It's a really fun and funny read, and it has some of the best writing about music, the rush of performing, the anguish and the let down after the music stops, and the examination of what it all means.

    Synopsis

    Daniel Weir used to be a famous - not to say infamous - rock star. Maybe still is. At thirty-one he has been both a brilliant failure and a dull success. He's made a lot of mistakes that have paid off and a lot of smart moves he'll regret forever (however long that turns out to be). Daniel Weir has gone from rags to riches and back, and managed to hold onto them both, though not much else. His friends all seem to be dead, fed up with him or just disgusted - and who can blame them? And now Daniel Weir is all alone. As he contemplates his life, Daniel realises he only has two problems: the past and the future. He knows how bad the past has been. But the future - well, the future is something else.
