THE FINAL REVIVAL OF OPAL & NEV BY DAWNIE WALTON

The book

Set in the 1970s, Dawnie Walton’s spectacular debut follows young aspiring musician Opal, as she journeys to New York from Detroit, where her radical politics and Afro-punk style always made her feel out of place. After forming a rock duo with British singer/songwriter Nev, the two quickly rise to fame, but their career is cut short after a violent controversy erupts. While The Final Revival of Opal & Nev has drawn comparisons to The Daisy Jones and the Six, Walton’s hugely entertaining novel offers its own fresh take on fame, power, and racial identity.
