About this book
Reissue of his debut novel, set in Paris in 1968. Christopher and Toni are eager to challenge the constraints of suburbia, but middle age sees Chris settling into bourgeois contentment.
Christopher and Toni found in each other the perfect companion for that universal adolescent pastime: smirking at the world as you find it. In between training as flaneurs and the grind of school they cast a cynical eye over their various dislikes: parents with their lives of spotless emptiness, Third Division (North) football teams and God.
