As her Egyptian holiday draws to a close and with the time to return to her miserable single life in Yorkshire fast approaching, 40 year old Debbie makes the craziest decision of her chaotic life.
Here amongst the brassy British broads and acidic old queens of Luxor, Debbie begins a new life on Television Street and with a sexy 24 year old boat captain on the horizon, discovers that there's far more to this ancient city than temples and tombs.
Has Debbie finally found the man of her dreams or is her young Egyptian lover simply taking her up the Nile?
Television Street is Tim Fountain's hilarious and heartbreaking debut novel. His book about the sex lives of the British Rude Britannia became the number 1 iBook in 17 countries.
