I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

    Sounds interesting Olga. I love your out of the ordinary finds. I’ll pop over to Amazon and check out more. 🙂 x

    1. Thanks, Debby. I requested it a while back and then it seems to turn up everywhere (New York Times, Goodreads, Bookbub recommendations), so it was a good reminder to read it. I think most rock and roll fans will enjoy it. It’s very quotable as well. Have a great Tuesday!

        You too Olga, thanks 🙂

  2. This certainly sounds different, Olga. Not sure it is my sort of thing, though the ‘interview’ style does actually appeal to me.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. With your interest in music, I think you might enjoy this one. Have a great Tuesday!

  3. It sounds interesting, Olga, and I quite like the sound of the interview style of telling the story – maybe that’s the journalist in me.

    1. Mary, I think you’ll enjoy this one. The style works quite well for the topic, I must admit. Have a great week!

  4. Fabulous review, Olga! I’m curious to see what Reese Witherspoon does with the adaptation of the book.

    1. Thanks, Jacquie. Yes, so am I. She has a pretty good eye for choosing interesting novels, that’s for sure!

    1. It is not my usual but I enjoyed it and think people who love music of that era will have fun with it. Thanks, Rob!

      1. I’m currently reading, “Just Kids’ by Patti Smith. She’s brilliant. She describes the same era, when counter-cultural tribes evolved around different genres of music. In 1975-77, we had Donna Summer, Glam Rock, the Eagles, the Sex Pistols, the Bee Gees, the Talking Heads, Devo, and Richard Hell and the Voidoids. It was a great time for music.

        1. It sounds like a great book. Yes, it was a great time for music indeed. Thanks for the recommendation, Rob!

          1. 🙂
