Publisher Comments:

Patrick "Pussy" Braden, resplendent in housecoat and headscarf, reclines in Kilburn, London, writing his story for his elusive psychiatrist, reawakening the truth behind his life and the chaos of long-ago days in a city filled with hatred. Twenty years ago, he escaped his hometown, fleeing foster mother Whiskers and her mad household to begin a new life in London. There, in blousey tops and satin miniskirts, he plies his trade, often risking life and limb among the flotsam and jetsam that fill the bars of Piccadilly Circus. But suave businessmen and lonely old women are not the only dangers that threaten Pussy's existence. It is the 1970s and fear haunts the streets of London and Belfast as the critical mass of history builds, and Pussy finds himself inevitably drawn into a maelstrom of violence and tragedy destined to tear his fragile soul asunder.
