Three dramatic and emblematic stories intertwine in Sway - the early days of the Rolling Stones; the life of avant-garde filmmaker Kenneth Anger; and the community of Charles Manson and his followers. Together they illuminate a decade's rise and fall; its gods and devils; and a particular hour in American history when many young revellers seeking joy, fellowship and liberation fell under a darker spell, leading to unprovoked and inexplicable violence.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Lazar's hugely impressive achievement is to evoke the energy of an over-documented time in a new way... As dark and enigmatic as its central subjects, Sway often feels like a whole new genre of folklore fiction...it's irresistible" * Daily Mail *
"Dark, intricate eulogy to the bloody death of Sixties idealism" * Esquire *
"Lazar is a clever enough writer to let his juxtapositions and cross-cuts do the work: indeed his visual imagination pervades" * Times Literary Supplement *
"Reveals Lazar to be a considerable talent" * Guardian *
"Sway is a study of layers of manipulation and control: Manson over his credulous followers; the Stones over their audience; Anger's attempt to harness the forces of magic... Casts a haunting spell over the reader" * Daily Telegraph *
