Dream On, Tom £6.95

Shane White

An everyday story of Karaoke Kamikazes, Dubious Dopplegängers, Rogue Civil Servants and Loyalist Twins in aprons.

Tom Dooley swore he would never go back to Belfast. But then Tom swears a lot, drinks even more, and daydreams of exotic solutions to his humdrum existence. Fate intervenes and unexpectedly brings him, his estranged wife Mairead and daughter Siobhan back to their roots from London.

In Belfast, the DSS are trying to withhold benefit entitlements from the locals. Tom is inspired to resistance. He leads the fight for the rights of his neighbours, an assortment of eccentric but deserving claimants. A cat-and-mouse game ensues between Tom and Fortesque-Smith, Head of the local DSS.

Will the DSS uncover Tom's plot and Achilles heel? Not if Glam Rocker Cecil The Mole can help it. Will Tom overcome the misfit enforcers and murky deeds of the DSS? Not if Fortesque-Smith can help it. Will Mairead forgive Tom's carousing and daydreaming? Yes, if Siobhan can help it.

A riotous rollicking rollercoaster of a journey from careless abandon in the Royal Oak in Camden Town to surreal activism in the dilapidated back streets of Belfast.

Oh, and William Jefferson Clinton...
