To the outsider, Tommy leads a very, very successful life. Which it is, but it’s also dull. And lonely. He has much to say, but no-one listens. He has strong opinions, but no-one cares. He has vibrant dreams, but no-one shares. A sense of humour, but no-one laughs. He wants to be a hero, but he has no-one to save. Instead, he immerses himself in a private world of desire, fantasy and adventure in an attempt to escape from his flat-lining life.
Then he meets Scunt. She is young, feisty and deeply enthralling … and on the run from a violent pimp and the police. She needs help – and Tommy is there. Finally a chance to become a hero of his own life. And maybe hers.
“A clever, funny and insightful romp through the mind of a world-weary, world-wary man who doesn’t really care about ‘political correctness’. Prepare to be offended!”
“A 21st century man who just wants to be anyone but who he is, and do anything but what he does.”
