1978. The North. Phillip sees life in a simplistic if passionate way: up or down, us and them, black, white and nothing in-between. When not doing his 'thing' in Wigan's Casino Club - voted 'The Greatest Disco in the World' by Time Magazine - Phillip hates the world. Or at least he thinks he does. He longs for the weekend, or a greater, permanent escape from the daily grind of factory life in an industrial town. Coming full circle by way of loss and more loss, you would hope lessons are learned… The book progresses through myriad dream sequences, interwoven song-themes, a father's philosophical ramblings, ever blackening wit, leitmotif - or seemingly recurring scenes; is someone laughing at our hero? And Phillip's own, lyrical, strut-like, black or white manner. Dancehall adventures via train rides to Heaven, scooter cruising almost coast to coast.

The Glass Tower

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-glass-tower...
A novel about power, culture and loss in the globalised world of the present The Glass Tower opens in a multinational corporation, where a new intake of graduates is getting a glimpse of what life is supposedly like on the executive floors. Among the assembled 'potentials' are a Chinese and an African, who have already seen too much of the glass tower to fall for the corporation's empty promises. They have a choice - either join the corporate treadmill or go home to their own emerging cultures, where life can still be nasty, brutish and short. Meanwhile, the company's western bosses are increasingly finding that their influence ends at the glass walls of the tower. The supply of malleable graduates is drying up, and the old ways of doing business are turning out to be either ineffective or illegal. As the view darkens, old alliances start to break down and it seems that even family can no longer be trusted… The Glass Tower is a wry and ruthless portrait of a weakened western elite struggling to remain relevant as the emerging world gets on with creating its own future.
