Surviving Sting

by Paul McDonald

When Mal starts going with Joolz, the most desirable girl in Walsall, 1979, he thinks his sexual dreams have come true. Unfortunately they dissolve in a comic brew of sex, violence, misunderstandings and too much alcohol. All part of growing up - a good read.


Joolz and I got together at the Walsall Town Hall Disco in 1979. She'd been going out with a mate of mine, Brainy Kev, for some time but had recently put an end to the relationship.
"I've chucked the Bastard."
"Why?" I shouted.
"He changed when bought his new copy."
