A major fiction debut from Fourth Estate. Utterly Monkey is a funny, energetic, wonderfully uplifting novel about where we?re from and where we?d like to get to?
Danny Williams is talented, upwardly mobile and has left his Northern Irish small town roots well behind him. In his mid-twenties, he lives in a stylish London flat and has a job in a top London law firm. However, one innocuous Wednesday night his old mucker from home, Geordie Wilson, arrives at the door. On the run from a loyalist militia, whose operational funds he has taken, he manages to bring everything that Danny has been fleeing from right to his smart London doorstep.
Taking place over an intense and gripping five-day period ? set in both London and the fictional Irish town of Ballyglass ? Nick Laird has written an hilarious, touching and ultimately redemptive novel about friendship.
