Über diesen Titel

Críticas:

"(Storage Stories) reads like his songs have come alive and run amok. Its childlike illustrations and magical-realist style summon no less than Kurt Vonnegut carrying his belongings in a supermarket bag-for-life." --Andrew Collins, Word Magazine

Vignettes from the other side of fame Record Collector celebrates the permanence of the musical endeavour, rejoicing that, for each slab of vinyl whether legendary or half-forgotten there s someone who cherishes it. Jim Bob, once of Carter USM, is here to remind us that, despite that permanence of deed, fame and success are essentially fleeting things. The faded pop star narrating Jim s first novel has been there and is back again, finding himself in the dreaded position of having to find a proper job . Managing a self-storage company and enduring the sporadic, It s you, isn t it? and occasional, Didn t you used to be... he wanders through life with a sharp eye for the quirky story hiding behind his customers lives, while renting storage to a Michael Stipe (just not the Michael Stipe) and expounding his theories on where boy bands go when they reach self-awareness. There s something of Nick Hornby in the way that the author infuses his work with the 30- and 40-something pop culture references that makes this book such an engaging read. Really a collection of peculiar snapshots making up an overall narrative; there s a wistfulness of loss at its core but around its edges lies a celebration in the diversity of human nature. --Record Collector magazine

Part Roald Dahl, part Spike Milligan, part (actually, a lot) smutty schoolboy, which suggest that even in a dull world of dog-t**d strewn alleys you can dare to dream. If some TV company ever bought the rights and made a sitcom out of it, we'd have the natural successor to Spaced. --SFX magazine

The list of novels written by pop stars is not a very long one and the list of good novels written by pop stars very much shorter. So it is a pleasure to be able to say that Storage Stories comfortably makes it on to the latter list, being as it is, very good indeed. --Transmitter magazine
