9780099498292: Cowboys and Indians

Joseph O’Connor’s first novel is a sharply focused and realistic story about a thoroughly unlikable Irish guitar-hero who nevertheless manages to capture the reader’s sympathy amidst a bewildering array of London acid house ravers and saloon-bar revolutionaries.

From Library Journal:

Eddie Virago leaves Dublin for what he hopes will be brighter prospects in London, taking only his guitar and mohawk haircut to aid his search for glory. Neither the rock group he forms nor the girlfriend he picks up manages to survive his extended crawl through the lowlife and seedy scenes of present-day London, where he meets, parties with, and cons a motley cast of similar wannabes. Only readers with a dedicated interest in a light but limited tale of sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll (told with a limited but repetitive vocabulary of profanity) will truly appreciate this novel by the brother of Sinead O'Connor.
