A novel set in council estates and lodging houses where the author went to do research into the conditions of "contemporary life." A project reminiscent of Orwell's Down and Out in Paris and London. There is a disclaimer in this book, though, unlike in Orwell's autobiography: "The author wishes to state emphatically that all characters in this book are entirely fictitious and no reference to any person, living or deceased, is anywhere intended."
