The Demolition of the Century Summary

The Demolition of the Century by Duncan Sarkies

'Twisted, surprising and very very very funny. Did I put too many verys? I don't think so' Jemaine Clement, Flight of the Conchords, on Two Little Boys

Tom Spotswood (a.k.a. William McGinty) is an insurance investigator who has lost his socks, his suitcase, his career, his ex-wife, and most importantly, his son, Frank.

He is being followed by Robert Valentine, the mysterious owner of the horse with no sperm; Alastair Shook and his van of teenage guards; and Spud, a demolition man who is using his wrecking ball to bring down the most beautiful movie theatre in town, the Century.

To find his son he will have to come to terms with his past - a past he ran away from. But first he will have to find those socks.

The Demolition of the Century appeals to fans of kooky, quirky humour similar to Flight of the Conchords.
