Description

Winner of the James Tait Black Fiction PrizeFor 16-year-old Simon Crimmons there is not a lot to do.

Going nowhere, fed up with school, he leaves to work as a driver on the trains.

That summer he is introduced to a world of grown-up glamour, strikes and girlfriends.

When Simon falls for the ethereal, aristocratic Varie, he finds freedom and adventure but will it be at a price?

Too 'posh' for the railways, too 'working class' for Varie, Simon must navigate what it means to be a man as his world is turned upside down.
