Not Fade Away by William Keisling

Not Fade Away is a story about boy who thinks he's Buddy Holly reincarnated.

In 1959, on the Day the Music Dies, President Dwight Eisenhower signs a top-secret order meant to protect America's biggest secrets.

Decades later, at the height of the cold war, an American army general in receipt of Ike�s long-forgotten order mistakenly believes he�s been told to nuke the world.

All that stands in his way is a mysterious boy who believes he's Buddy Holly reincarnated.

What begins as a spoof on cold war spy thrillers soon becomes a tour de force of 20th century American pop culture.

�I wanted to write the sort of 19th century novel that sums up the age in which we live, a switched-on Dickens,� explains writer Bill Keisling. �Instead of two-dimensional Dickens characters, the characters here are American archetypes inspired by pop artists like Roy Lichtenstein. I wanted a book that departs from the dull state of American realistic fiction. I wanted a book that is fun.�
