'I go in my bedroom and lie on my bed and soon as I set eyes on Nick it's like magic...' (Alison, 14)Starlust is a stunning oral history of pop music fandom in all its glorious, unexpurgated ecstasies and deliriums. Through first-hand accounts collected from interviews, diaries, letters and confessions Fred Vermorel presents an unprecedented, multi-faceted portrait of 1980s-era pop adoration and obsession - from lonely teens love-struck by Nick Heyward, to the androgynous disciples who claim psychic connections with David Bowie, to the housewife-devotees who share 'lashings of Manilust' for Barry Manilow. 'This book, at first glance full of the fantasies of maniacs, is really full of the wonderful dreams of people just like you and me.' Pete Townshend Faber Finds is devoted to restoring to readers a wealth of lost/neglected classics and authors of distinction. The range embraces fiction, non-fiction, the arts and children's books.
