Big Davey Quinn, unexceptional seventh son of a seventh son, has come home. In twenty years, many things about his home town have changed. But the locals have not. Bob Savory has made a million with his company Sandwich Classics. Francie McGinn, the divorced minister at The People’s Fellowship, is still trying to convert the town through his Fish-and-Chip Biblical Quiz Nights. And Sammy, the town’s best plumber, is looking for solace at the bottom of the whisky bottle.
Clever, touching and spot-on in its description of small town life, RING ROAD confirms Ian Sansom’s status as one of our funniest and most perceptive authors.
