Disco Boy is a novel about putting things off. Paul's life is an endless process of deferral as procrastinates endlessly about his job (DJ for a MobyDisc), the law degree wasting away, living with his parents, his friends and of course women. Sometimes it is easier to joke yourself away as a failure than to put your hands on the keyboard and write that hit song or lean forward and kiss that girl who has been your best friend's girlfriend all these years . This is a laugh out loud funny, sweet and aware novel with poignant under tones. Everyone will identify to some degree with the lives of Paul, Zoe, Nige, Simon, Flea, Lucy (well maybe not Lucy) as they set out on their adult lives of discovering who they are supposed to be. It is This Life in a book.
