The Story of John Nightly, Hardback Book

The Story of John Nightly Hardback


The Story of John Nightly is a novel about the nature of creativity - at the level of genius.

It mixes real and imagined lives in the tale of a young singer-songwriter. John Nightly (b. 1948) finds his dimension in pop music, the art form of his time, and his solo album becomes the third best-selling record of 1970.

But success turns out to have side effects. After a dazzling career, John renounces his gift, denying music and his very being, until he is rediscovered thirty years later by a teenage saviour dude who persuades him to restore his quasi-proto-multi-media eco-mass, the Mink Bungalow Requiem. Can John Nightly be brought back to life again?
