After getting discovered at her local bar's amateur night in 1970s Detroit, an aspiring Black British singer-songwriter gets signed with a fledgling rock label and moves to New York City to make a record. There, she's met with unexpected hatred as a rival band on the label brandishes a confederate flag at a concert, leading to a whirlwind of clashes and discoveries about the racism of the popular music industry. Hear Dawnie Walton talk more about her new novel, The Final Revival of Opal and Nev, alongside newfangled Bon Appétit Editor-in-Chief Dawn Davis, who also edited the book.
