And when an old man tells him there is a fortune to be made, not far away, Mouse runs away to become the Bottle Boy. Stephen Elboz's novel is full of drama, bizarre characters. action and humour. Mouse's story is set against that of the other characters in the book, in particular the haunted Polish refugee, Joe, and his own history.
