Rotten in Denmark


‘Nailing perfectly what it was like to be a young music-obsessed kid in the 70s … depth and narrative thrust’ — Andy Basire

If you know there was more to the seventies than boogie nights and flares but can’t quite remember what, then this is the book to fill in the gaps.

Jim Pollard’s first novel reads like a thriller, it has pace, bite and great humour. It turns the music industry, punk rock and growing up in the 70s inside out. But it’s a book about frailty as much as fame; about a man coming to terms with who he is, with the values of friendship, his own vulnerability and search for self-expression. Merciless yet honest.

Rotten in Denmark was shortlisted for an bursary for new writers.
