Professionally reviewed as 'Witty novel ,superbly written, reminiscent of Tom Sharpe.'
Brings new hope for the dead. Even they could enjoy it.
Very sexy too.
On impulse Jack joins a creative writing class for something to do.
He is a bit flippant with the tutor, and is told to write 'something funny' for his first homework. The class like it, and as he adds other ideas during the course, he gradually finds it turning into a comic novel.
He fancies Janice, a beautiful classmate, and seeking to ingratiate himself with her he makes her the book's heroine.
Janice is the girl friend of the class tutor, so things get a touch tricky.
Jack's book becomes a savagely satirical and sexy piece of work, peopled with a host of comic characters behaving in an all too human way.....despicably.
It all builds up to a tremendous climax when the whole of Blackpool Illuminations (Northpool in the novel) is laid to waste by a series of clangers that drag the hero into deeper and deeper waters, from which there is seemingly no escape.
Then, with one mighty bound........ well, maybe......maybe not.
