Temperance Town by John Williams
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Take three guys. Mikey's a shoplifter. That's when he's not working on his true vocation as a ladies man. Ozzie's a social worker. Well, these days he is. Back in the day though he was a bomber, a proper urban revolutionary. Deryck's a copper. And he's back in the last place he ever wanted to be. That's Cardiff, Wales. Used to be a docks town, used to be a steel town, used to have a place called Temperance Town. Not any more. Now it's a 24 hour non-stop party town. Mikey loves it that way. Ozzie liked it better before. Deryck never liked it either way. In turn funny and poignant, brutal and tender, Temperance Town follows three guys, their lovers, their kids and their mates, all trying to make sense of their lives in a world that makes less sense every day.
