Shine On, Marquee Moon Paperback
by Zoe Howe
Shine On, Marquee Moon, the debut novel of respected music writer Zoe Howe, is a rock `n' roll love story that celebrates the extremes of life in the music business and challenges the myth of sex, drugs and rock n' roll with plenty of wry humour, strong characters and sharp dialogue along the way.
Sylvie is a dresser working for a New Romantic band currently enjoying a 21st century revival.
Sylvie becomes romantically involved with Nick - reluctant heart-throb and the least unhinged member of the band - after bonding amid the chaos of touring life over a shared obsession with Television's seminal album `Marquee Moon'.
However, a dark secret threatens to destroy their future together and much more besides.
Shine On, Marquee Moon exposes the hilarious, heart-wrenching and often bizarre reality of life on and off the road, where the most unlikely people become family, and `friends' aren't always who they appear to be.
Shine On, Marquee Moon is shortlisted for the Virginia Prize For Fiction 2016.
