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.

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?
