If you like Douglas Adams, you'll love this book. The tone is similar, but with a decidedly American flair to it.

Since his conception, Oliver Vale has had a connection to Buddy Holly, even thinking of him as a sort of substitute father figure. Rock-and-roll is Oliver and his mothers religion and you learn a lot of rock-and-roll history as you follow Olivers story from February 3, 1959 through the 80s. One day the world turns on their TVs to find Buddy Holly on every single channel playing tunes and repeating Oliver Vales name and address over and over. Without TV, people become irate and Oliver has no choice but to run. This madcap sci fi adventure is unique, funny, and entertaining as well as a relevant social commentary.
