“Dunn writes great entertainment. Fans of towering beehives and classic hip-swaying, harmony-driven pop will definitely want to take a look.”

-Publishers Weekly

 

 

Once a high-flying girl group, The Annas were at the top of the rock ‘n’ roll charts. But when the British Invasion knocked them off their perch, lead singer Anna Dubower fell hard. After mounting an unsuccessful comeback attempt, Anna winds up mysteriously dead, putting an end to the era of The Annas.

 

But songwriter Dink Stephenson still carries a torch for Anna 30 years later, and decides to dig into her murder and finally get to the bottom of her untimely demise. With a quirky cast of characters and a fast-moving plot, Meet the Annas is the book world’s answer to a catchy bubblegum tune.

 

Once you’ve finished Meet the Annas, take another trip down memory lane with one of Dunn’s other rock ‘n’ roll novels.

 

 


Free Fridays Recommends

 

Each week, we ask our featured author to recommend a book or author that you may want to check out. Since authors are such passionate readers themselves, we thought you might like to find out what they love to read, too! Here’s what Robert recommends:

 

 

 

There are many great Beatles books, but Jonathan Gould's Can't Buy Me Love is the one that first sprang to mind. Gould covers the lads' story every which way, as history, myth, literary crusade, and down and out rock n' roll. I highly recommend it.

 

By the way, John Lennon makes a cameo in Meet the Annas. In fact, all the Beatles worshipped the girl groups my novel is based on. Happy reading!

 


 

NOOK owners: go to shop and search for “Robert Dunn” to download his rock ‘n’ roll novels.

Free Fridays are always one of the highlights of the week!!  I have built a huge library from your lists and can't tell you how much I appreciate the availability of all these great books.  Can't wait to read Five Minutes on Mondays, one of the free books today.  I believe it will super-charge my week and give me inspiration for dealing with everyday work issues. 

by ftjohnson on ‎07-06-2012 10:22 AM

I love the Free Friday book selections.  I rarely find one that I don't want in my library.  I've been reading a lot more since I bought my Nook three months ago.  Thank you for your free books.
