Articles
A young warehouseman, his promising football career cut short by injury, counts flanges, valves and couplings for a living. He longs for the warmth and women of the office, but the prostitutes who hang around the high-rise are easier to deal with. Drink provides relief, if not escape, and probably the last thing he should dream of becoming is a writer, but then he buys himself a note pad and pen. This debut novel by Neil Campbell, author of the short story collections 'Broken Doll' and 'Pictures From Hopper', is a moving and darkly comic meditation on the challenge of trying to realise dreams in a harsh and unfair world.
