Dave is fine. His sunny disposition sees him through the day. He's smart, funny, considerate and polite. We all need someone like Dave in our life, he's great company. He's the man that stops to open the door for you. You see him at work, you walk past him in the street, you sit next to him on the train. He's strong, happy and confident. He's always smiling. Last week, Dave tried to kill himself. Again.
Life and Death by Dave is the journey of a well-meaning soul battling against the bullies, bad boys and bigots. Hopelessly positive Dave, a former child genius who was born in a barn, struggles to keep upbeat in the downpour of life. Encounters with a Polish apple-picker, a soap star hunk, a gun-toting drug dealer and a semi-naked Mick Hucknall push him and pull him between magnificence and ugliness. Every day is a fight but one that Dave faces with a healthy dose of dark humour, self-deprecation and a blistering 80s soundtrack.
As you follow Dave through school, crap jobs, gay clubs and the UK pop festival circuit, prepare to have your perception of a suicidal soul challenged. He can't stand Morrissey for a start.
Life and Death by Dave is available for Kindle and other e-readers.
