Dance When the Party's Over
All is not as it seems when K arrives at Oxford in 1984. Is the girl with the irrepressible hair really a miner's daughter? How did Mario get his place at the University? And what is Raj doing with those binoculars? 'Dance' takes us on a student goose chase to a northern town where Robin Hood appears to be still alive and extorting. Back in Oxford, the disgraced Mario goes missing along with a mysterious painting... We follow Mario's journey through France to find redemption, as others in the Oxford crowd graduate and move to start careers in London. K encounters drag queens, meets Amanda and helps her search for her estranged mother. Eventually, the reunited friends need to track down the valuable painting, the hunt taking them to Berlin and a rather queer café in the Canaries. An irreverent tale of coming of age, friendship, identity, illusion, love and loss. With poetry.
