Information
James Jones is slipping steadily through life. He has a steady job as a junior partner at a solicitor's firm‚ a steady girlfriend and a steady mortgage. Nothing much is happening in Jones's life but he really doesn't mind - this is exactly the way he likes it.

Michael Donovan‚ meanwhile‚ is a star - a world-class international lawyer and advocate - he's everything Jones wanted to be and isn't. Jones was once Donovan's pupil and‚ for a while‚ it looked like he too would make his name - but he left that high powered world behind a long time ago‚ or so he thought.

One day Jones reads in the paper that Donovan has collapsed in court - then‚ out of the blue‚ Donovan contacts him‚ he has a job he needs Jones to work on ...

Joseph O'Neill's debut is wonderfully clever and comic novel - about ambitions and aspirations and the realities that they inevitably collide with.
