Welcome to the Heady Heights Paperback / softback

Description

A hilarious, dark and heart-warming drama about the elusivity of stardom, in an age when `making it' was `having it all' ... `A real new talent on the Scottish literary scene' Press and Journal Welcome to the Heady Heights ... It's the year punk rock was born, Concorde entered commercial service and a tiny Romanian gymnast changed the sport forever. Archie Blunt is a man with big ideas. He just needs a break for them to be realised. In a bizarre brush with the light-entertainment business, Archie unwittingly saves the life of the UK's top showbiz star, Hank `Heady' Hendricks', and now dreams of hitting the big-time as a Popular Music Impresario.

Seizing the initiative, he creates a new singing group with five unruly working-class kids from Glasgow's East End.

Together, they make the finals of a televised Saturday-night talent show, and before they know it, fame and fortune beckon for Archie and The High Five.

But there's a complication; a trail of irate Glaswegian bookies, corrupt politicians and a determined Scottish WPC known as The Tank are all on his tail... A hilarious and poignant nod to the elusivity of stardom, in an age when making it' was `having it all', Welcome to the Heady Heights is also a dark, laugh-out-loud comedy, a heart-warming tribute to a bygone age and a delicious drama about desperate men, connected by secrets and lies, by accidents of time and, most of all, the city they live in.
