'No one is more acutely tuned to the heartbeat of Belfast than Glenn Patterson and no one is more skilled at capturing all its love and madness. He does so with both tenderness and humour' DAVID PARK
Herbie has had enough.
It doesn't seem like he has much going for him anymore. His wife, the great love of his life, left him years ago, his daughter has fled for the bright lights of London, and now he's lost his job too.
But life has a tendency to surprise. When Herbie wanders into a new café in his neighbourhood, he may well find something he never expected...
Could it be that life isn't finished with him yet?
