Solomon Capri is a semi-retired pop star who appears to be settling contentedly into middle-age. With his gorgeous, successful wife, Jenny, his country pile, and gold discs hanging in his plush bathroom, he seems to have it all.But all is not well between Jenny and Solomon; as her business continues to grow, her affection for her husband begins to diminish, and soon divorce is on the cards. To try and win Jenny back, Solomon throws his bruised heart into trying out for a reality TV show that turns lapsed pop acts into opera singers.The ace up his sleeve is an eccentric octogenarian opera coach he employs to get ahead of the competition but, to his surprise, Solomon learns far more than how to improve the quality of his vibrato; especially when his coach asks Solomon to duet with newly single Samantha...Sex, Drugs & Opera is the debut novel of Tears for Fears musician, Roland Orzabal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent debut from the main songwriter for Tears For Fears Not my normal cup of tea, but hey, when the main singer/songwriter of Tears For Fears decides to throw down a novel, I'm there. For those familiar with Orzabal's work, don't expect the experimentation or the deep thoughts he provides through his music. Instead, he presents a relatively low-key, straighforward story of a past-his-prime musician who's quite comfortable in his advancing age. So, while I was hoping for a touch more insight into the human condition, I got a light, yet entertaining slice of life story. Not a bad compromise. I'd read more if he put it out.
