Beck, Harry i Leon marxen de Londres amb un ford de quarta mà amb el maleter ple de diners robats. Però podran deixar de veritat la ciutat que porten en els seus ossos? En la novel·la Kate Tempest torna enrere en el temps fins al moment en què Barcky i Harry es van trobar per primera vegada, en els antres de Londres. S’exploren així les seves vides i els seus moments d’intimitat, capturant l’essència de la lluita continua en la vida urbana contemporània, sobretot dels joves que busquen feines, oscil·lant entre les seves passions i els seus compromisos.

Kate Tempest's critically acclaimed debut novel, the literary companion to her Mercury-Prize nominated album Everybody Down, takes us into the beating heart of the capital in this multi-generational tale of drugs, desire and belonging

Young Londoners Becky, Harry and Leon are leaving town in a fourth-hand Ford Cortina with a suitcase full of money. They are running from jealous boyfriends, dead-end jobs, violent maniacs and disgruntled drug dealers, in the hope of escaping the restless tedium of life in south-east London - the place they have always called home.
