It’s Wednesday morning. You hate your job so much you haven’t done any work for two weeks and nobody’s noticed. You share an office with a sad and obsessed Trekkie whose computer manuals are encroaching on your workspace. Your breakfast routine has gone wrong. It’s your 29th birthday.

This is a novel about men’s need for routine and what happens when life intervenes. A funny, poignant and fast-moving tale of office life, drinking, drugs, love, friendship, clubs, football, computer programming and the perfect financial heist.
