9780099458876: Skinheads

Skinheads is the story of a way of life, told through three generations of a family: Terry English, original ska-loving skinhead and boss of a mini-cab firm; Nutty Ray, street-punk skin and active football hooligan; and Lol, son of Terry, nephew of Ray, a fifteen-year-old kid just starting out.

Terry is sick and not sure he's going to make his fiftieth birthday, but is kept going by his music, his lovely assistant Angie, and his discovery of the abandoned Union Jack Club, which he decides to clean up and re-open. Ray, meanwhile, is out driving mini-cabs and struggling to control his anger - his only release: days out with Chelsea's finest. But when he takes the law into his own hands in an explosion of righteous violence, his future starts to darken.

Review:

"King...offers a nuanced argument for skinhead culture" ( Arena)

"An energetic and technically adroit writer" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"King's achievement since his debut has been enormous: creating a modern, proletarian English literature at once genuinely modern, genuinely proletarian, genuinely English and genuinely literature. His novels immerse his readers in the stream of consciousness of people who, as routinely depicted in the media, barely have consciousness at all" ( Independent)

"King is a master of idiom and street slang. He speaks with a voice that appears to be the true expression of disaffected white British youth" ( The Times)

Book Description:

A brilliant novel about skinhead culture and disaffected youth from the author of The Football Factory.
