See below for just a tiny taster of the critical praise heaped on ‘The Thrill of it All’!
“O’Connor writes with such passion, such precision, such beautiful sentences, with such an ear for language and with such knowledge and hilarity that this book could only come from an extremely gifted Rock’n’Roll obsessive. A BRILLIANT AND VITAL DOCUMENT.”
“A valentine to that endangered species, the rock and roll band, and a homage to the magic produced by humans playing music in a room.”
“Completely amazing. So funny you have to put it down to laugh. Then very moving.”
JOHN BOYNE, AUTHOR OF THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PYJAMAS.
“Evocative and vibrant, poignant and witty”
“A brilliantly conceived and touching novel.”
“This book is a must.”
