The Song of Phaid the Gambler - Mick Farren

The Song of Phaid the Gambler - Mick Farren
A punter's journey.


Phaid, as the title suggests, is a punter. Not a singer though, and the book begins with him broke and absolutely nowhere near where he wants to be.

In an indeterminate grimy world that is in bad condition due to failed weather technology among other things, Phaid and his luck set out to try and get back to where he works out he should be.

A bit seedy, a bit baroque throughout his wanderings, lusts and adventures.
