    This is a slice of skinhead life so close to the real thing that you can taste the mushy peas and vinegar from the seafront when you read it It follows the ribald romance of Trog and Mandy, and the many mishaps they encounter on what was supposed to be a charming weekend jaunt to a ska festival by the sea There is so much detail of the working class life of the time that you can tell that the author must have lived and breathed it, and he has poured his experiences into this solid stomper of a novel.

    Taut and authentic, this compact subculture fable kicks off at a slow pace, moves up a gear and then accelerates and explodes into well timed seaside violence Skinhead Away is a bruising piece of pulp fiction for hoolie lit disciples with short attention spans.
