Книга: Ben Myers «Richard»


In February 1995, Richey Edwards checked out of a London hotel instead of flying to the US with the rest of the Manic Street Preachers. There were a few subsequent sightings but then nothing. His body was never found, and he was declared legally dead in November 2008. Now Richard tells the story of his life and disappearance as he might have told it. This moving, tender novel tells the story of a lost boy adrift in a world that he can't make sense of' Marie Claire Myers deserves credit not only for adding a third dimension to Edwards, but for trying a fourth, for attempting to document a period of his life that seems destined to remain a mystery The Times A sympathetic and sad imagining of the boy who became a reluctant pop idol Time Out Harrowing and hauntingly sad Mojo
