Winner of the 1991 Whitbread Award--Britain's highest literary honor for a first novel--Alma is about the ravages of celebrity, the perversity of fandom, the extravagant and tawdry ways images and moments make and unmake a life. Burn blends fact and fiction as he reinvents the life of one of Britain's most celebrated pop stars from the '50s.
