Little Bastard
Description

Two brothers in conflict. This is London, 1977.

LITTLE BASTARD tells the story of two feuding brothers over a six-month period in 1977 – from the Queen’s Silver Jubilee to Christmas. Jason, the older brother, models himself on James Dean, rides a motorbike and is highly successful with women. Robin, the younger brother, is sensitive, introspective and worships Marc Bolan. The stories of Dean and Bolan (and their tragic car crash deaths) are interwoven with the principal narrative – foreshadowing the denouement of the novel when Jason’s motorbike crashes on the same stretch of road in Barnes as Marc Bolan’s Mini and leads the two warring brothers to a bitter final confrontation at Jason’s hospital bedside.
