Alma Cogan

(1991)
A novel by

 
Awards
Whitbread Prize Best First Novel

"An extraordinary, unprecidented novel, audacious, innovative and totally compelling."
William Boyd


If Gordon Burn had simply risked this much and failed, you'd have to love this dream memoir for its daring alone. But to have succeeded so brilliantly makes Alma Cogan a novel to treasure. As a dark meditation on fame and its undertow, as a dangerous and loving vision of post-war England, as a ruthless antidote to nostalgia, it's unlike anything I've ever read. (Michael Herr).
