Raised by gorillas in the wild jungles of New Zealand, scarred in battles with vicious giant wetas, seduced by a beautiful young scientist, discovered by Memphis record producer Sam Phillips and adored by millions ? the dirt-to-dreams life story of Caliban is as legendary as his 30 number one hits. That story came to a dramatic end in 1977 when Caliban took his own life. But now, in a sensational new development, a manuscript, written in old age by Caliban himself, has emerged which proves that his story didn?t end there. At last we can know: why did he leave us? What did it all mean to him? And ? for the first time ? what did it feel like to be Caliban? Each new book from Nigel Cox is a surprise. But Jungle Rock Blues is a wild, slow-motion astonishment. ? Bill Manhire Through its hypnotic fusing of two mythic lives this novel takes on some of the founding fables of our culture. In the guise of a joyous adventure story, it slyly poses questions about genius, fame, failure and love. From its boldly funny opening page, the novel re-imagines the facts, and from then on the reader surrenders to one of the most extraordinary narrators in our literature: speculative, sexy, outlandish and tender. In a pulpy world, Jungle Rock Blues rewrites the lyrics of the familiar, giving us a wondrous new song.But this wasna#39;t meant unkindly, Shirley-Ann had been at Humes High with Elvis, everyone who knew was glad to see Laura out in the world again. Pity though ... Then it justgot too scary altogether, the monster, great hands twitching, was about to squeeze a pale neck, and she absolutely had to seize his arm. He didna#39;t react a€“ he allowed this. As usual shethought the monster though scary was also sad.
