Nina Dall is one half of Sydney pop-punk band The Dolls. Have they got what it takes to stay on top or are they just a one hit wonder? Told through the eyes of a young singer who's seen it all, this is celebrated rock journalist Jenny Valentish's debut novel - a wild ride into Australia's music scene.
Jenny Valentish grew up in an unlovely satellite town of London, where she learned the art of escapism through music. At sixteen she started interviewing musicians and has done so ever since for a variety of magazines and newspapers, becoming editor of Triple J magazine and now Time Out Melbourne. None of those musicians wound up in this book, obviously. She has also been in a bunch of bands herself, but you wouldn't have heard of them.
