A Ton of Malice
The half life of an Irish punk in London
Barry McKinley
Old street publishing.

Any book that mentions the radiators from space in its opening score of pages is bound to draw me in. I got drawn even further as songs get a mention.

They were cursory mentions however as it became a hedonistic tale of life in London as a young adult. Well written but the half life just isn’t that interesting. Ultimately it was a tale of love but was it love of ignorance, drugs or a person? Not so sure really.
