With an engaging lightness of touch and much humour this book tells the story of ten days in the lives of four unemployed young people sharing a flat in London. Chris tries to earn money selling postcards and taking foreigners on guided tours; Dan has a job in a ticket agency until he is sacked because of the recession; Sue calls at the Job centre every day but without results; and Rat-faced, well-intentioned but goofy, concentrates on growing his secret crop. The humour is compassionate yet critical and there is an underlying serious concern about the plight of the unemployed and their feelings of frustration and powerlessness in the face of a seemingly complacent Establishment.
