9780006511922: The Full Monty

Novelisation of the award-winning, smash-hit British film The Full Monty which has been acclaimed worldwide for its humorous and moving portrayal of a group of redundant steelworkers in Sheffield.

The Full Monty is the story of the launching of a male striptease act by a group of out-of-work steelworkers who are down on their luck and strapped for cash.

Inspired by a visit of The Chippendales to a local ladies’ night, Gaz, a 36-year-old wild-card, drags his best friend Dave and a most unlikely group of ‘strippers’ through a series of hilarious adventures in pursuit of their strip-for-cash scheme.

Through the process of rehearsing the show, worrying about their physiques and, ultimately, going ‘the full monty’, they form new friendships, find a new purpose in life and recover the self-respect that had been stolen from them during the months of unemployment. This heartwarming novelization deals with reinventing oneself in a world where roles are shifting and deeply held beliefs are being overturned.

From the Back Cover:

ORIGINAL NOVELIZATION OF THE SMASH-HIT MOVIE

Out of work, out of cash and out of luck, Gaz and Dave are redundant steelworkers in Sheffield, struggling to hold on to what little remains: their self-esteem

When a visit by the Chippendales evokes a frenzied response from the local women, Gaz has a brainwave. In desperate need of money to fight a custody battle for his son, he persuades Dave and four equally unlikely lads that if women will pay good money to see men take their clothes of, why give it a go?

Their heart-warming journey between conception and performance is littered with tears and laughter; will they turn their lives around and go the full monty?
