What chance has a bloke got of going straight when it’s been twenty years of boozing and prison since his last big fight?
That’s what Bomber Jackson has to discover when he sets out in search of love and sobriety.
It’s the early hopeful years of the Blair government but hope is in short supply for
an edgy homeless ex boxer and what else can he do but pick himself up and start again every time life knocks him over…. except slowly bit by bit he seems to get the feel for what a new life would be like if only he could stay away from the drink. Then just when Bomber could be saved there comes a final act of loyalty and violence which might leave him dead or in prison for a very long time.
A serious story told in popular form Bomber Jackson will keep you wondering right to the end whether he achieves redemption or not.
Reviews for Bob Boyton’s work:
No one but Bob could tell the stories he tells because of who he is and where he’s been.
In a world of artifice he stands out. He’s the Real McCoy.
‘.. dialogue that resonates with authenticity’
‘Looks like he’s good for a few rounds.’
