Synopsis
Danny McQueen has dreamed of being a pop star since he was thirteen-years-old. Now he's twenty-nine and still dreaming. But he faces a dilemma. His girlfriend Alison wants him to sort his life out. She's given him an ultimatum: Find a record deal by the end of the year or it's find a new girlfriend. When is it time to give up on your childhood ambitions? When is it time to stop watching Columbo in your underpants and get a proper job? Is six months long enough for one last assault on the big time? Is friendship ever more important than love? Is it just your imagination or can your girlfriend always tell when you've been looking at Internet porn? With the help of his boss Kostas, his two best friends, and an eighty-year-old Kung Fu enthusiast called Sheila, Danny McQueen is about to find out.

GOODNIGHT STEVE MCQUEEN (US) (Mar 2005)
Two sides of a dream ending
Posted by Jonathan Tully at July 20, 2006 02:18 PM

(excerpt)

The main character in Goodnight Steve McQueen, the first novel written by Louise Wener, is on the other side of the question of whether to give up. Danny McQueen (his real first name is Steve) is a guitarist in a London three-piece called Dakota that always seems just around the corner from the big break. Danny�s girlfriend has bigger things in mind for him than working at the video store and playing the small-club gig, and basically lays it down for him � either score a record deal or quit music.

Danny and his bandmates make one last, huge push, with some quite hilarious results at times. Wener -- who was the lead singer of Sleeper, a fairly successful Britpop band in the U.K. -- is at her best when Danny is dealing with the other two guys in Dakota, Dexys Midnight Runners-obsessed lead singer Vince and affable, na�ve drummer Matty.
