About this item

I Am Still the Greatest Says Johnny Angelo is Nik Cohn's hymn to rock as myth, in all its crazed, absurd and glorious excess. Johnny Angelo is the pop star to end all pop stars—narcissistic, mock-heroic, and massively destructive. The novel follows his progress from warped infancy to final messianic explosion. A cool and highly original read, which Bowie once claimed inspired Ziggy Stardust. King Death is part nightmare, part modern fairytale and wholly original. Eddie is a strange man with an extraordinary talent—he administers Death. His subjects, he explains, are thrilled and transported. When America's most successful TV entrepreneur witnesses Eddie in action, they literally ride to glory on the Deliverance Special, a train carrying King Death and his huge entourage all over America.
