Frankie Blue, Book 1
Winner of the 1999 Whitbread First Novel Award
Estate agent Frankie Blue is known on his home turf—White City, Shepherd’s Bush—as ‘Frank the Fib’. He’s a liar—but one who always tries to tell the truth. Frankie has been friends with Diamond Tony, a hairdresser, Colin, a computer nerd, and Nodge, a cabbie, since schooldays.
Now they are thirty and trying to live the same life as they did then—drinking, girls, banter, football. Then comes Frankie’s Great Betrayal—Veronica, and marriage, his ticket to a bigger, better grown-up world. From the moment he tells his mates, the whole patchwork of their friendships begins to collapse—revealing the sad, shocking but often hilarious truths that lie underneath.
