The Last Days of Disco Paperback / softback
Early in the decade that taste forgot, Fat Franny Duncan is on top of the world.
He is the undoubted King of the Ayrshire Mobile Disco scene, controlling and ruling the competition with an iron fist.
But the future is uncertain. A new partnership is coming and is threatening to destroy the big man's Empire ... The Last Days of Disco is about family, music, small-time gangsters ... and the fear of being sent to the Falklands by the biggest gangster of them all.
Witty, energetic and entirely authentic, it's also heartbreakingly honest, weaving together tragedy and comedy with an uncanny and unsettling elegance.
A simply stunning debut. `There's a bittersweet poignancy to David F. Ross's debut novel, The Last Days of Disco' Edinburgh Evening News 'This is a book that might just make you cry like nobody's watching' Iain MacLeod, Sunday Mail `Full of comedy, pathos & great tunes' Hardeep Singh Kohli `Warm, funny & evocative' Chris Brookmyre `Dark, hilarious & heartbreaking' Muriel Gray `Captures the time, the spirit ...
I loved it' John Niven `If I saw that in a store I would buy it without even looking at what was inside' Irvine Welsh `Like the vinyl that crackles off every page, The Last Days of Disco is as warm and authentic as Roddy Doyle at his very best' Nick Quantrill
