Scumbo is a Scottish singer and songwriter who's half-rock star and half-monk. With too much sex, too little love and no money, this punk troubadour searches for a way to live life on his own terms.
In addition to the title novella, this book contains eight dark, funny and compassionate stories of love, friendship, sex and death, set in the urban jungles of Europe and the U.S.A. in the early 1990s. In this world of talking mailboxes, poverty, flowers, guitars, loneliness, beauty and sadness, things are never as they seem--and nor are they otherwise.
