Description

In August 2009, a renowned entertainment reporter was thrown out of a plane over Los Angeles. At the time of his unfortunate death, he was working on a manuscript detailing the strange personal life of one of the most secretive celebrities of our time––Rook. Luckily, this work-in-progress was rescued, although the details surrounding the case remain obscure. Now, assembled here, is that most sought after exposé of the infamous rock star, searching for his lost innocence. Come along and join the quixotic adventure, as it journeys from LA, to Amsterdam, to India, and back. Along the way, Rook struggles with celebrity excess, reignites with his old flame, gets mixed up with the mafia, and must rescue the daughter he never knew he had. From the heights of hedonism, to the depths of despair, this topical parody explores that beast called fame.

For readers interested in literary allusions, this satire is in part a pastiche, paying homage to elements of "Don Quixote," "Either/Or," "Ulysses," "Satyricon," "Crime and Punishment," and other works.

"A rock star searching for his soul embarks on an underworld picaresque in this gonzo satirical romance. ... A smart, entertaining send-up of celebrity under siege."
--KIRKUS REVIEWS

"Glavin...teaches English in California. He pull[s] from his extensive knowledge of literature for the book which contains allusions to classic works...Even if readers miss the references, they can still enjoy the story." --Naperville Sun

"Explores stardom and scandals ... the story has a tragic element along with its humorous theme. [Rook's] journey takes him from Los Angeles to Amsterdam and India with twists and turns along the way."
--Claremont Courier
