About this product
- DescriptionIn this incendiary debut, young writer Wes Brown writes of the neglected working class man and his place in British society. Ex-soldier and violent deadbeat John Usher returns to his boyhood home of Leeds to find things have changed. His community has been unravelled by gang culture, ethnic tensions and hopelessness. Unable to sleep, his only consolation is drinking late into the night and playing pool by himself. That is, until an encounter with a hard right activist leads him into a twisted relationship of deceit, cuckoldry and hatred.
- Author BiographyWes Brown is a twenty-something young writer from Leeds but based in London. He is the author of Shark, a novel about class, masculinity and culture in 21st century Britain. He is the editor of a number of books including LS13: A New Generation of Leeds Writers, Cadaverine Anthology and Myths of the Near Future. He is currently working on a novella called When Lights Are Bright about the EDL and the Shannon Matthew's kidnap and a book of stories about wrestling, storytelling and masculinity called Breaking Kayfabe.
