Stuart David is best known for his participation in twee outfits Belle and Sebastian and Looper, but The Peacock Manifesto, the Glaswegian's second novel, further outlines his name as a talented writer.
The Peacock Manifesto follows the story of irate and contrived Scot, Peacock Johnson, and his American companion Evil Bob as they plot to turn their bizarre idea into a fantastic reality.
The story follows the clueless couple as they travel the length and breadth of America in search of a producer willing to turn Glen Campbell's 'Rhinestone Cowboy' into a big beat anthem.
Enduring all manner of unfortunate incidents and mishaps, David encapsulates the reader with his black humour and satirical edges, which are highly evident within each character.
Riviting and positive, this is a must read for all fans of modern culture.
The Peacock Manifesto outlines Stuart David as going beyond merely a 'one to watch', basking in the laurels of his musicianship, but distinguishes him as a thoroughly fresh and exciting author.
