Synopsis: In this novel the author offers a realistic picture of contemporary modern life and explores the seeming devaluation of simple joy and affection in an increasingly aggressive and materialistic society. Adam Lively also wrote "Blue Fruit".

He has published the novels Blue Fruit (1988) and The Burnt House (in 1989), a novella The Snail (1991), and a pamphlet in Chatto Counterblasts series, Parliament: The Great British Democracy Swindle (1990).
