Synopsis

In February 1995, Richey Edwards checked out of a London hotel instead of flying to the US with the rest of the Manic Street Preachers. There were a few subsequent sightings but then nothing. His body was never found, and he was declared legally dead in November 2008. Now Richard tells the story of his life – and disappearance – as he might have told it.

‘This moving, tender novel tells the story of a lost boy adrift in a world that he can’t make sense of’ Marie Claire

‘Myers deserves credit not only for adding a third dimension to Edwards, but for trying a fourth, for attempting to document a period of his life that seems destined to remain a mystery’ The Times

‘A sympathetic and sad imagining of the boy who became a reluctant pop idol’ Time Out

‘Harrowing and hauntingly sad’ Mojo
