Synopsis of book»

All The Rage is the story of a pop band - from their first appearance at the Eurovision Song Contest to the K-Tel Greatest Hits CD. Spanning the 1980s, the career of Things Fall Apart encompasses the best and the worst of the decade that taste forgot. It is all here; dodgy haircuts, fashion disasters, shoulderpads to die for, strangely familiar TV presenters and a sinister manager who makes Popstars 'nasty Nigel' seem like a saint.

Hugely funny and immensely readable, All The Rage is a fantastic new novel from one of the most respected literary figures in the country. Amidst the sequinned boob tubes and spangly jumpsuits is a superbly written and touching story about love, loss, dreams, disappointments, and the highs and lows of fame.

'I really loved this book. My imagination was vividly evoked. Characterisations were full on, three dimensional and involving. Plot and structure fascinating. Most of all, it is a timeless narrative that captures the moment it is in. Magrs took me through my perfectly evoked teenage years and reminded me of my present thirty something cynicism. It read like a TV miniseries. A true camp masterpiece, I am exhausted from recommending it to my friends. Armistead Maupin needs to watch out. With the English writers Paul Magrs and Belinda Jones, we can offer a crackling fun alternative! I am hungry for more of these books that just make you feel good!'J. Breeds
