A tour de force from the creator of Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell and Billy Liar. No London neighbourhood more resembles the restless downstream tide of the Thames than the ragged square mile of Soho, and into this human rabbit warren one evening slips Alex Singer, a student from Leeds in pursuit of his errant girlfriend. Twenty-four hours, three deaths, one fire and one mugging later, seduced, traduced and befriended, Alex is on his way to the Soho Ball. In this fast, funny and superbly crafted novel, Keith Waterhouse draws a vibrant portrait of London's liveliest quarter past and present and of its eccentric inhabitants.

'Quite easily the wittiest and best chronicler of contemporary life' The Sunday Telegraph 2 'You stay gripped from the opening paragraph... It crackles with insight about the nature of sexual obsession' Val Hennessy in the Daily Mail 3 'He can be angrily oratorical, bluntly rude, soberly informative, boozily clownish, but cannot stop being very, very funny' Alan Brien in The Sunday Times"
