Kill Your Friends (Revised)

John Niven (Author)
Available

Description

AS the twentieth century breathes its very last, with Britpop at its zenith, twenty-seven-year-old A&R man Steven Stelfox is slashing and burning his way through London's music industry. Blithely crisscrossing the globe in search of the next megahit--fueled by greed and inhuman quantities of cocaine--Stelfox freely indulges in an unending orgy of self-gratification. But the industry is changing fast and the hits are drying up, and the only way he's going to salvage his sagging career is by taking the idea of "cutthroat" to murderous new levels.

Reviews

"A very dark, viciously funny novel."--Booklist
"I loved Kill Your Friends. Who didn't? Scorched earth humor at its finest."--Douglas Coupland, author of Microserfs
"Hilariously dark and satirical."--Library Journal
"This is not for the easily offended, but readers with at least a slightly deranged bent will have a ball."--Publishers Weekly
"Like the product of an unholy union between Bret Easton Ellis and Martin Amis...the reader is alternately shocked and left crying with laughter."--Bookseller (London)
"Kill Your Friends is the most exciting British novel since Trainspotting."--Word magazine
