NMM Bookshelf: The Alternative Hero

August 19, 2010

I just finished a book late last night that some of you might enjoy, called “The Alternative Hero” by Tim Thornton (Knopf, July 21 2009, 978-0307271099).  The book takes place in England, where the protagonist is a fan of alternative music during the middle 1990’s, in particular of a fictional band named The Thieving Magpies.  [...]
