Sheridan Entwhistle, a middle-aged magazine executive develops anarchistic tendencies when a suspected heart attack forces him to reappraise his life. Resigning from his highly-paid job, he spends a night in the woods, picks a fight in a pub and wears his wife's floral blouse to a barbecue party.

Superb condition, mild shelf wear only. A vividly inventive satire, that sparkles and spits with attitude. A great read, about the yearning for more excitement, and the potential mid-life crisis in all of us. (fic)Review:
‘Satire is generally a crude affair, dealing in broad strokes rather than loving detail. In his latest novel, Tristan Hawkins exposes his characters’
flaws and foibles with an almost sympathetic intimacy. Sheridan is, of course, a sad old sex-obsessed bastard, but he is also self-aware, loving and funny. Jayne and Yantra, on the other hand, are filthy, deluded, selfish and philosophically challenged. Hawkins is as convincing in his portrayal of these deadbeat chumps as he is when describing middle-management politics and the inescapable hell of getting old.’
Laura Tennant, Harpers & Queen
