Read full description of the books:
This book is about the protagonist of a short story called 'The Last Of The Mohicans' - he wears the last Mohican punk haircut in Dublin.
By now this untalented guitar player is moving to London for work. He has a small band and keeps trying to get gigs and auditions despite a dreary day job, pathetic parties and an unwillingness to pay off his student loan to the Bank of Ireland. Staying down in the Tube he lives like a mole and has no sense of streets or directions. The Indians mentioned are a family from India in the place where he rents a flat, running a business with a slogan 'You've tried the cowboys - now try the Indians.'
We are not meant to like the protagonist, who cannot be called a hero, and when he is keen to ditch his band in the hope of solo stardom, we are not surprised.
If you think this somewhat sarcastic read would appeal to you, go for it, you might get a laugh or a regretful memory of working in London.
