The Final Revival of Opal & Nev

Book Review: The Final Revival of Opal & Nev by Dawnie Walton

I know there have been comparisons to Daisy Jones & the Six, but The Final Revival of Opal & Nev by Dawnie Walton goes so far beyond the story of a journalism-style review of a 1970s rock group. This book, oh my goodness.

Walton addresses racism and bigotry in the U.S., weaving a story that shows that we really haven’t done that far since the 1970s.

She illustrates how women’s voices – especially those voices of BIPOC women – were silenced then and now.

She brings together music and fashion to demonstrate how art can take so many forms for so many people.

The Final Revival of Opal & Nev that spans 40 years but is timely for this day. I highly recommend it!
