It’s the eighties, when almost everything suddenly seems possible, yet Alekzandr’s musical shortcomings remain obvious to everyone.
After years of struggling, he’s somehow landed himself another recording deal. But in an industry already crowded with one hit wonders, even Alekzandr’s record label doubt there’s space for a Queer “talent” like him.
Still, Alekzandr – the Vinyl Tiger – isn’t about to let that stop him.
He has crossed oceans and endured all kinds of ordeals to get this far, and, is determined to prove some stars are made, not born.
He’s going to give it all he’s got to make it big, regardless of who or what he leaves behind in his wake.
Because the best pop stars may reach the top by making music, but they only remain there by making waves.
Vinyl Tiger is the debut novel by former gallerist/curator Dave Di Vito, now available in its second, serialised edition.
Reviews for the original edition:
"Vinyl Tiger has a refreshing unique story line and one anyone who loved the 80's and 90's will enjoy reading." - Moral Fortitude
"Vinyl Tiger is one of the most unusual books I've ever read... there's this fundamentally endearing quality to the words and the events that take place within the story..."
"Any story that can make me feel so strongly about the characters deserves high praise... so God damned unique! I've never read anything like it and doubt I will again"
"The story is a stark, real and brutal look behind the curtain at what it entails to become a star, even when that isn’t the main aim. It’s the story of a normal guy, who works his butt off to make his dreams a reality."
