Friday 56 – Dashboard Elvis Is Dead by David F Ross

Welcome to Friday 56! Hosted by Freda’s Voice, you turn to page 56 or 56% in any book or reading device and pick a sentence that grabs you.

From my current reads I have chosen my Blog Tour book Dashboard Elvis Is Dead by David F Ross (click for link to Goodreads):

Book Description From Goodreads:

A failed writer connects the murder of an American journalist, a drowned 80s musician and a Scottish politician’ s resignation, in a heart-wrenching novel about ordinary people living in extraordinary times.

Renowned photo-journalist Jude Montgomery arrives in Glasgow in 2014, in the wake of the failed Scottish independence referendum, and it’ s clear that she’ s searching for someone.

Is it Anna Mason, who will go on to lead the country as First Minister? Jamie Hewitt, guitarist from eighties one-hit wonders The Hyptones? Or is it Rabbit – Jude’ s estranged foster sister, now a world-famous artist?

Three apparently unconnected people, who share a devastating secret, whose lives were forever changed by one traumatic night in Phoenix, forty years earlier…

Taking us back to a school shooting in her Texas hometown, and a 1980s road trip across the American West – to San Francisco and on to New York – Jude’ s search ends in Glasgow, and a final, shocking event that only one person can fully explain…”

Friday 56 Quote:

“I stop looking and begin to observe. A large gray bird pecking furiously at an unidentifiable roadkill carcass. A curly-haired, barefoot child playing alone in the gutter.”

I have only read 2% of this book and this is at 56%. I am intrigued as to how it got to this point! There is quite a lot of detail so you are able to start to form a picture just from these few sentences alone.

    Love the first line from your F56 quote because while it’s a small difference between words it has such a big meaning! This definitely sounds intriguing and I hope you enjoy it! Have a lovely weekend 🙂
