Nik Cohn's hymn to rock as myth, in all its crazed, absurd and glorious excess, I'm Still the Greatest Says Johnny Angelo was once the inspiration for David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust. Partly based on the legendary rocker PJ Proby, Johnny Angelo is the pop star to end all pop stars - narcissistic, mock-heroic and massively destructive. The novel follows his progress from warped infancy to final messianic explosion. 'Cohn writes in such a rich, strange prose style that its responses linger long after the book's initial impact' - Robert Holland
