About the book..
John Nightly (b. 1948) finds his dimension in pop music, the art form of his time. His solo album becomes one of 1970’s bestselling records – but success turns out to have side effects. Supermaxed in LA after a dazzling career, John renounces his gift, denying music and his very being, until he is rediscovered in Cornwall thirty years later by a teenage saviour dude, who persuades him to restore and complete his quasi-porto-multimedia eco-Mass, the Mink Bungalow Requiem. This epic novel mixes real and imagined lives in the tale of a young singer-songwriter, to tell a story about creativity at the highest level – the level of genius.
