An award-winning work of epic alternative history tracing the rise of one of the twentieth century’s most beloved bands: Pink Floyd
Hailed in Italy as an ingenious, genre-bending fictional account of the rise of Pink Floyd, Michele Mari’s Red Floyd follows the illustrious rock band from infancy to world renown through the eyes of an incredible array of witnesses—real and imaginary, dead and alive.
Blending the true with the apocryphal, Red Floyd takes readers into the wild and rowdy world of English progressive rock and into the minds of such legendary figures as David Bowie, Stanley Kubrick, and Alan Parsons. Mari’s narration opens a mesmerizing window onto Pink Floyd’s most intense periods of creativity, its tawdry secrets, and its hidden inspirations, creating a rich tapestry that tells one of the most inventive stories in recent fiction.
