Alex Singer, a student from Leeds, wanders into Soho in pursuit of his errant girlfriend. 24 hours, three deaths, one fire and one mugging later, seduced, traduced and befriended, Alex is on his way to the Soho ball.
A tour de force from the creator of Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell and Billy Liar. No London neighbourhood more resembles the restless downstream tide of the Thames than the ragged square mile of Soho, and into this human rabbit warren one evening slips Alex Singer, a student from Leeds in pursuit of his errant girlfriend. Twenty-four hours, three deaths, one fire and one mugging later, seduced, traduced and befriended, Alex is on his way to the Soho Ball. In this fast, funny and superbly crafted novel, Keith Waterhouse draws a vibrant portrait of London's liveliest quarter past and present and of its eccentric inhabitants.
