A must-read.

Dawnie Walton's The Final Revival of Opal & Nev

The Final Revival of Opal & Nev by Dawnie Walton is a kaleidoscopic fictional oral history of the rock ’n’ roll duo who shot to fame in the 1970s. Opal is an independent woman pushing against the grain discovered by British singer/songwriter Neville Charles, and the two begin to make music together, but soon after events occur that change their lives forever. Provocative, daring and a remarkable female heroine make this unforgettable.
