It's 1988 and Jeff Winston works at his local radio station, bored with the way his life has turned out.

This causes Jeff some problems. What does he do? How has this happened? Is there a way back? In trying to explain these things, Jeff begins to realise that these matters are beyond his control but not, he hopes, beyond his understanding. Trying ... Read the complete review
