Skintown, Hardback Book

Description

`We're in the back of a car belonging to the men our mothers told us to never get in the back of a car of.

I close my eyes and wonder how many girls will come to my funeral.'Vincent Patrick Duffy has already checked out.

Trapped between Skintown's narrow horizons, he chops ribs and chickens in a takeaway, dreaming of escape, joint after freshly rolled joint. A mindless act of kindness leads to the unlikeliest of business opportunities.

Where the government has failed, might the second summer of love and a little pill with a dove on it be the broom to sweep away the hatred and replace it with love, so much love? Skintown is Vinny's drink- and drug-fuelled odyssey through fighting, fishing, rioting, romance, reconciliation and acid house.

Bristling with a restless energy and drunk on black humour, this superb debut is a wild ride.
