user submitted synopsis
A book that is as much about London as its central characters, incorporating out-of-work twenty-somethings in the 1980s, veering between the dole queue and dead-end jobs, slumming from party to blissed-out afternoons on top of London council flat rooftops. A soundtrack of Coltrane and Callas acts as a backdrop to the book's heroes' time of discovery and existentialism.
