Bohemians believe that if you travel light and live for today, you'll never grow old...Novelist Max Napier didn't set out to make a mess of his life but if you choose to entertain romantic notions and a raffish self-image, it's always on the cards. Now on the brink of turning 50, he's alone in his little flat, out of ideas, out of love and out of fashion. A chance meeting with an old friend arrests the spiral, but not all the ghosts from Max's past are benevolent and there are tricky curves to negotiate on the road to redemption. Paul Thomas' new novel is a darkly funny portrayal of baby boomer mid-life crisis and a dazzling satire of fast-money raunch culture and the way we live now.
Paul Thomas is known for his previous crime short stories, SEX CRIMES, and novels OLD SCHOOL TIE (also known as DIRTY LAUNDRY), INSIDE DOPE, FINAL CUT and GUERILLA SEASON, which have sold strongly both here and in Australia. After living in Australia for some years, he has now returned to his native New Zealand
