THE DEBUT NOVELLA BY WIGAN'S JAMES WALTON
Jimmy Stott is stuck. Working in a chip-shop in Wigan and feeling a little lost in life, he gets his kicks from nights at the local social club playing his beloved darts under the watchful eye of his faithful Grandad. Funny thing is - Jimmy isn't just a decent darts player. He isn't even just good... He's great. Jimmy's got a knack for the arrows, and it's been noticed by some very important people.
Can Jimmy make it in the wild world of competitive darts playing, and still maintain the family values he's so proud to have? Or will he fall flat as he's plunged into a world of satin-clad glamour, booze and sponsorships?
James Walton's debut novella, written in his trademark Wigan dialect, is a peek into a world inaccessible to many, reflecting on life as a working-class lad, the importance of friendship and, ultimately, the temptations of fame.
