Description: Christopher and Toni found in each other the perfect companion for that universal adolescent pastime: smirking at the world as you find it. This title follows Christopher to Paris in time for less evenements of 1968, only to miss it all in a haze of sex, French theatre and first love, leading, to Toni's disappointment, back to Metroland.
Synopsis: Christopher and Toni found in each other the perfect companion for that universal adolescent pastime: smirking at the world as you find it. In between training as flaneurs and the grind of school they cast a cynical eye over their various dislikes: parents with their lives of spotless emptiness, Third Division (North) football teams, God, commuters and girls, and the inhabitants of "Metroland", the strip of suburban dormitory Christopher calls home. Longing for real life to begin, we follow Christopher to Paris in time for less evenements of 1968, only to miss it all in a haze of sex, French theatre and first love, leading, to Toni's disappointment, back to Metroland.
