Human Punk by John King

Regular price $4.50 Sale

For fifteen-year-old Joe Martin, growing up in Slough, the summer of 1977 means punk rock, reggae, disco, stolen cars, social-club lager, cut-throat Teds and a job picking cherries with the gypsies. Life is sweet - until the night he's beaten up and thrown in the Grand Union Canal with his best friend Smiles. Fast forward to 1988, and Joe is travelling on the Trans-Siberian Express after three years working in a Hong Kong bar, coming to terms with Smiles' suicide, remembering the highs and lows of the intervening years. Fast forward again to the present, and Joe is sitting pretty: earning a living as a DJ, selling records, fight tickets and homegrown dope. Life is sweet - until a face from the past forces him to re-live that night in 1977 and deal with the fallout. This 2000 Jonathan Cape Paperback is in Good condition.
