Containing sex, drugs and dance music, Strobe is loosely based on the author’s personal experience as part of the illegal rave scene and drug subculture of the early 90’s. Set in and around Cambridge, England, it follows nineteen year old Dan and his group of friends as they attend house parties, warehouse raves and hang out together.
Dan experiences the mind-alteration of LSD, the buzz of speed and the lethargy of cannabis as he begins an ill-fated relationship with Steph, one of the girls from the local area. The real object of his affection is Sam, but she and one of the other lads, Jimmy, are in a relationship and there seems no hope they’ll ever get together.
Meanwhile, the police are taking a softly, softly approach to the illegal raves as the lads enjoy themselves, but fractures start to divide the group. Can their enjoyment last? Will there be a come-down after the up?
Read Strobe and you’ll be taken on a journey of drug induced highs and lows. This is a gripping read throbbing with the pulse of dance music.
This book contains adult themes.
Edwin Page is the author of numerous other fiction and non-fiction books. Among them is Distance, a novel about the misadventures of Dan four years after the events in Strobe, and the dark novella that was written under the influence of The Prodigy entitled The Darkness Inside.
