Rock musician Jed Jordan s former fame means the events in his life have become public property. Years after Captain of the Rules made him world famous in New Zealand, Jed is living quietly in an Auckland suburb with his family, growing peppers and recording in his home studio, when some disturbing new attention threatens to tear his world apart. Also profoundly affected are three women whose lives are closely caught up in Jed s his wife; a childhood friend who has returned from Australia for her father s funeral; and the fifteen-year-old Jed chats to in the local dog park. Vivid and engaging, " In the Neighbourhood of Fame" shines a light on modern relationship struggles within and between families, and on the unpredictable power of celebrity and social media."
