This contemporary rights of passage novel is a calm, cool, and well controlled debut flooded with warmth and humanity.
Mark's best friend, Jim, has just jumped from the window on the twentieth floor. In his quest to understand what was going through Jim's mind, Mark heads for London; dreams of songwriting, and the rhythms of better living drumming gently in his mind.
As his adventure unfolds Mark drifts through a familiar yet sometimes alienating cityscape using music and literature to help make sense of things, and making the most amazing friendships on the way.
'... a generous and engaging novel which embraces the extremes of human experience so thoughtfully and yet so lightly.' Emma Rae, Planet Magazine, Issue 195.
