9781907681127: Here Comes the Nice

Here Comes the Nice is novel as time-machine, taking the reader back to the raw early gigs of the Rolling Stones, the Who, the Small Faces, and behind the scenes to a secret that will make the sixties of the first-wave Mods live forever - somewhere. Elegiac and thrilling, Here Comes the Nice is a paean to the power of the obsessive imagination.

About the Author:

Jeremy Reed is a Jersey-born poet and novelist, dubbed by the Independent, "British poetry's glam, spangly, shape-shifting answer to David Bowie", and by Pete Doherty, "a legend". Author of over fifty volumes of poetry, fifteen novels, and numerous volumes of non-fiction, Reed is known for his extraordinary imaginative gifts, his characteristic use of language, and his visionary mining of subject matter outside the range of his contemporaries.

Review:

"Pop culture revivals and obsessive style nostalgia are extrapolated to an almost frightening degree in this speed-rush of music, drugs, and time-travel mysticism. Paul is a journalist in a dystopian, gray, near-future London. As he works on a biography of 1960s fashion designer John Stephen, Paul begins running into a mod archetype called the Face, still young, riding his decked-out Vespa among the armored limousines and roving 'hoodie gangs.' Is the Face a time traveler, a meth addict obsessed with the last generation's fashions, or, like the aging bands and politicians, trying desperately to freeze time? Reed's portrayal of the 1960s - the clothes, the language, the sex, and the music - is surreal and perfect. He doesn't shy from the queer side of mod culture and accurately portrays the legendary young bands as kids, both amateurish and brilliant. Either a critique of retro chic or its most extreme expression, this page-turner is a volume knob - turner as well. " - Publishers Weekly (Starred review).
