In our fame-obsessed culture, we’re fed daily (whether we like it or not) with every little detail (real or invented) about the lives of stars. In his wonderful ‘oral novel’, Paolo Sedazzari attempts the opposite: he fleshes out the biography of a band that never was. There is no Hollywood ending where the three young characters are signed into a life of fame and money, but there’s plenty of the bittersweet nostalgia that makes the lives or normal people more interesting than those of stars.
