This book is absolutely amazing. It’s the best fiction book I’ve read in about ten years and I’m loving it. I’m near the end and don’t want it to finish. It’s just so well written and the storyline is riveting; if the writer didn’t know Lou Reed (when he was at his worst e.g. making bad records and using heroin), his imagination is wildly believable and spot on. The book is even greater in that in athough Reed’s role in the book is a major one, he’s still a bit part player in the storyline.
