Carp is the story of Brian Porker, an aging rock star, told in a series of episodes from his life: as a nature loving lad who collects eggs; a high-living rock singer auditioning to replace the "newly deceased" Mick Jagger; and in his final guise as an ornithologist-comedian.
Witty, absurd, and keenly insightful, Carp Fishing on Valium will establish Graham Parker on the literary scene in the same wickedly incisive way he turned rock on its ear.
