The Men From The Boys
Adam and Kevin were childhood best mates. Kevin, leader of the pack at school, was always the dominant one, while Adam, bookish and sensitive, rode on the coat-tails of his friend. Sharing football and fighting, secret dens and bad bands, their friendship survived everything – even neighbourhood differences.
Then Kevin’s professional football career is wrecked by a knee injury. Unemployed, with a wife and two children to support, he takes refuge in drink and drugs, while upwardly mobile Adam lands a high-flying job in London. Will the gap between them become too much even for the best of friends?
Touching and funny, Philip Collin’s novel of life, love and loss is the unforgettable story of a new generation.
