Part 1 of the 'Superchick' trilogy, followed by 'Rock & a Hard Place' and concluding with 'Ride On.
‘All women are bastards …’
Jimmy Collins – competent middle manager by day, suburban rockstar by night – has just been dumped and he’s not taking it very well. Even a visit to his stylist can’t cheer him up.
He decides to take control of the situation, convincing his friends to help him find the perfect girl – beautiful (but loyal), smart (but not too smart), confident (without being feminist), an expert bun-maker, who’s indifferent about shopping, enthusiastic about Star Trek and scornful of self-help books.
As lead singer and guitarist with one of Dublin’s best-known pub bands, The Grove, Jimmy decides to kick things off by writing a song for her; the mythical babe who’s got it all – Superchick.
But where should he go looking for her?
How will he know if he finds her?
Who even said that finding her would be the hard part?<
And why is there a little Japanese guy following him around with a saxophone?
