"We the boys in Maccie D's
Every Friday night"
"Ali Taylor's slice of urban life is small but thrilling. It is driven by a pulsating rhythm, a sense of place, a menacing undercurrent of casual violence waiting to erupt, and a layered story that suggests the lads' friendship was about to be blown apart by other factors as adolescence gives way to adulthood. The writing is gritty and sweaty, with a tom cat swagger and cut with half-rhymes and littered with assonance and alliteration... a tiny gem."The Guardian
"A dazzling display of dramatic virtuosity... darkly polished, thrillingly inventive... gleams with gutter poetry."Time Out
This is optional.
A poetic, explosive thriller about three young men on a night out that ends in violence.
