'An incredible book . . . about men and how important friendship can be to men.' Douglas Stuart

'My god this is gorgeous. Wild, wise, wonderful . . . Absolutely brilliant.' Russell T Davies

Everyone has a Tully Dawson: the friend who defines your life.

In the summer of 1986, James and Tully ignite a friendship based on music, films and the rebel spirit. With school over, they rush towards a magical weekend of youthful excess in Manchester played out against the greatest soundtrack ever recorded. And there a vow is made: to go at life differently.

Thirty years on, the phone rings. Tully has news.

It's so beautiful . . . The love between friends, between men, is so rarely celebrated. It's gorgeous. ― Damian Barr

I was pretty much in love with its main character by page four, and I was confident it would be one of my books of the year by about page ten. -- Daniel Hahn ― Spectator 'Books of the Year'

An intelligent and beautifully written portrait of being young in the 1980s and what makes male friendships tick. ― The Times 'Books of the Year'

On almost every page there is an arresting sentence or idea . . . O'Hagan's achievement is . . . to fill the pages with roaring life, right up to the last kick of the ball. ― Herald
