Flick

By Abigail Tarttelin

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

Going nowhere is easy ... it's falling in love that's hard. The first novel from the author of GOLDEN BOY, FLICK is 'a slow-burn cult classic' (GQ).

'My name is Flick and these are my images of my disconnected life, my forgettable weeks and unforgettable weekends. I am one of the disaffected youth.'

Stranded in his home town by a lack of education, cash and anything better to do, Will Flicker, a.k.a. 'Flick', muses on whether Pepsi is better than Coke, the Art of the Right Amount of Stoned and why Rainbow, the new girl in town, is just so much hotter than the losers and users he counts as friends.

But when a dangerous figure from the past threatens his future with Rainbow, Flick finds himself torn between the ties that bind him to his old life and the freedom that she represents.
