About this title


Mick Walsh, the protagonist, is a good kid who happens to be at the wrong time in the wrong place. He wants to learn how to be a motorcycle mechanic, but bad luck, inexperience, and tough economic times prevent him from getting a job. At a disco one evening, he meets and dances with Karen Lodge, whose future is similarly bleak. She works in the local shoe shop and the pair hang out with Mick's buddy, Alan, who joins the army and ends up in Northern Ireland. As ever, Hines avoids sentimentality and tells it like it is, without ever relinquishing hope and sympathy.
