John Niven’s little brother Gary was fearless, popular, stubborn, handsome, hilarious and sometimes terrifying. In 2010, after years of chaotic struggle against the world, he took his own life at the age of 42.
Tracking the lives of two brothers in changing times – from illicit cans of lager in ’70s sitting rooms to ecstasy in ’90s raves – O Brother is a tender, affecting and often uproariously funny story.
I am chuffed to be in conversation with John at the Walthamstow Rock ‘n’ Roll Book Club. John is a great talker, and this is a great book, so hope to see you there.
