A lonely ex-pat in Paris finds himself acting out of character when a beautiful but troubled young woman walks into his meaningless work-fuelled existence in The Lost Generation, whilst an ex-con takes matters into his own hands when a bullying boss targets his new inamorata in Take it Outside; both stories feature in this new collection of short fiction by Irvine Welsh's 'favourite British crime writer', Tony Black. See a recent school-leaver react against the rigours of the workplace in First Day in the Job and witness the drug-addled descent into madness of a man forced to take the only job in a town peopled by junkies in Too Cool for School. These stories are collected here for the first time in an 8,000-word anthology. First Day in the Job originally appeared in Northwords Magazine whilst the rest of the collection featured in Demolition Magazine and the American anthology, Dicked.
