Cocaine Summary

Cocaine by Phil Strongman

Pete is a freelance journalist who thinks he's got a scoop on the big band of the moment and whose life revolves around the next party and, increasingly, the next line of coke. Set in the fickle Soho music and media world, this isa sharp, often funny, but by no means amoral novel about the music and drugs businesses."

Cocaine Reviews

'Profound, terrifying, drug-soaked and - most of all - drop-dead accurate In COCAINE, Phil Strongman has fashioned a compulsively readable, rocket-fuelled blast of contempo music-biz reality. A genuine literary high, COCAINE stands out as an instant classic for the powdered-nostril set' Jerry Stahl, author of PERMANENT MIDNIGHT

'The steamy side of the music biz and coke chic is vividly chronicled in this cautionary tale of white-line fever. Fiction that is fact.' Roy Carr, Executive Editor VAX, MELODY MAKER, NME

'COCAINE is an entertaining yarn written in a sharp, flashy style reflecting the sharp, flashy media froth that Strongman (a former music and style writer for the glossies) is writing about.' THE LIST

'The narrative is fast paced and attention to detail is keen.' IRELAND ON SUNDAY

'Strongman has the background knowledge and the liingo to make this a convincing and uncomfortable story of chancer and scammer.' SCOTSMAN

'A fast-moving debut novel of the freeloader culture.' BOOKS MAGAZINE

'A bright and appealing read, this novel has the perfect slant on London's hyped-up, cooler-than-thou-scene-makers. Strongman's sharp dialogue is caustic and authentic and he sustains the manic pace of the life spinning crazily out of control in this cynical- and sad
