For fans of Roddy Doyle and Irvine Welsh.
Two young boys from a small town just outside Glasgow form a rare and sometimes dangerous friendship that crosses Scotland’s sectarian divide. When mysterious circumstances force one of them to cross the Atlantic it seems the old battle lines have won out. Years later they’re reunited at a family funeral and decide to head to America together on a long promised road trip. But they aren’t alone. With each stranger that crosses their path, it shapes up to be a trip of a lifetime… if they can survive.
Firm is an adventure story that flits between gritty reality and the comically bizarre.
