About this product
- DescriptionEzekial Murphy, a West Indian immigrant, takes up a new job as an attendant at a large London lavatory. The supervisor, Josiah Reylds, and Jason, a third West Indian, explain that their main problem is the casual sex which takes place in the cubicles. Under pressure from the council authorities to reduce such behaviour, they expect Ez to help them in 'cleaning out the swamp'. Each of the protagonists brings his own moral assumptions to the question. Ez, a devout Adventist, is shocked by such revelations. Jason, a Rastafarian, believes that this kind of sex occurs because 'Whitey' is inherently corrupt. Reylds, who takes more pragmatic view, is concerned to prevent further illicit encounters in case the council attempts to close the establishment down. Subtly influenced by the women in their lives, Ez, Reylds and Jason - their future employment prospects in jeopardy - must take a fresh look at their work and at themselves.
- Author BiographyWarwick Collins is the author of eight novels, all of which have been published to great acclaim across Europe but some of which have yet to be published in the UK. Gents has been a bestseller in France and remains hugely popular over there as well as enjoying significant success in Germany, Italy, Spain and Scandinavia. Collins is viewed by our European colleagues as a major British writer but is criminally ignored in his own country. Until now.
