I wouldn't have been able to write this book if I didn't have a teenage son at the time. Not that this is a mirror image of Ben ... but the red and white scarf on the cover's windowsill was his 'doss-rag', a vital accessory for a biker in those days.From the Back Cover:
Funny, moving and beautifully written, Stephen and Violet is an outstanding new novel from this accomplished author.
