'Closing Time' by Peter Hughes

Closing Time "I had a vindaloo to celebrate moving out. I thought if I can move out, I can handle a vindaloo."

Come and tumble through a few pages of the protagonist's existence in bedsit land - more a riot than a rite of passage! This celebration of life is sure to leave your glass more than half full. A tribute to the Hull author whose novel was recently published by AuthorsOnline.

Selected extracts read by Peter Lewin and Trevor Hughes. Also featuring the music of various artists, arranged and performed by Matthew Hogg.
