Cowboys and Indians Summary

Cowboys and Indians by Joseph O'Connor

The first novel by Joseph O'Connor, bestselling author of Star of the Sea and Shadowplay.

Eddie Virago, proud owner of the last mohican haircut in Dublin, leaves his home town to find the fame and fortune he's convinced awaits in the wild world of the London rock scene.

Things don't quite go as planned, however. He finds himself living in a ramshackle hotel with a girl he met on the ferry over, while a bewildering array of acid-house ravers, saloon-bar revolutionaries, music-business wideboys and media primadonnas all seem very anxious to help Eddie on his way...

'Very funny... An immensely readable and entertaining book, full of truth about the world we live in' Sunday Independent

'Clever, wry and often hilarious...with sardonic, very knowing digs at youthful pretension' Time Out

Sharply observed and always entertaining * Independent *
This is an impressive debut: a good story, well told, great characters, with sardonic, knowing digs at the youthful pretention...clever, wry and often hilarious * Time Out *
Well-written, tremendously confident * Irish Independent *
Characters that leap out at you like figures in a pop-up book. Joseph O'Connor's first novel suggests he is bound for fame * Observer *
