Leeds in the 1970s, the Yorkshire Ripper is on the loose and fear stalks the streets. This is the background against which Rick, a very smart gay 16-year-old, strives to find his identity. Convincing descriptions of how difficult life was when homosexuality was still an underground existence. This was the start of the Gay Liberation Movement and the Punk phenomena. Grim reading but a great main character. A debut novel in Yorkshire dialect.
