From official release/information:
A new novel from a much under-rated British writer, Mark Morris, is given the PS Publishing treatment. Nowhere Near an Angel is a sharply and subtly written tale guaranteed to unsettle its readers.
"During the long, hot summer of 1976 sixteen year-old Rob Swann decides to kill himself. Then, on a tinny transistor radio, he hears the Sex Pistols for the first time and it changes everything.
Over a quarter of a century later, Rob is a man with a colourful past. Ex-punk, drug addict, gangster and jailbird, he has finally put his troubled life behind him and is enjoying a settled, law-abiding, carefree existence. Then one day he meets and befriends the enigmatic Suzi -- at which point everything begins to unravel."
With an introduction by Stephen Gallagher Nowhere Near an Angel is released in two states - 500 numbered hardcover copies signed by Morris (£25.00) and 200 slipcased hardcover copies signed by both Gallagher and Morris (£60.00.)
