Eddie, a “proud owner of the last mohican haircut in Dublin,” leaves his hometown to enter the rock scene of London (“Cowboys and Indians”). Along the way, he encounters “acid-house ravers, saloon-bar revolutionaries, music biz wideboys and media prima-donnas.” The Independent called O’Connor’s debut, which was also shortlisted for a Whitbread Prize, “Sharply observed and always entertaining” (“Cowboys and Indians”).
