Alan Partridge meets The League Of Gentlemen. Directed by Edgar Wright and a young George Lucas...
Bob Flint is a man with a dream.
A dream of running his own bar, Bob’s Bar.
The only trouble is, since he married Maggie Flint he hasn’t had any money, drive or ambition. So, after an horrendous accident with a whiskey bottle, Maggie goes into a coma and Bob discovers her secret life insurance policy just waiting to be collected. With money from local loan sharks ‘The Bentleys’ borrowed against his windfall, he sets to work making his dream a reality in Maggie's 24 Hour Launderette business 'In A Spin'.
Things would have been great if it wasn’t for his outstanding drinking problem, lack of good business sense, haunting visits from his comatosed wife and police investigations into the suspicious circumstances surrounding her accident.
To make matters worse The Bentleys are demanding their money back and Maggie simply won’t die. In fact, the doctors say she could make a miracle recovery. Bob Flint is a man with another dream. A dream of making it out of this one alive.

Absolutely First Class!
By far the best book I've read in a long time, the audio version of Spritz provides a slightly different perspective and interpretation of this tour de force of a novel. The depth and relatability to all the characters keeps you sucked in and makes you want to keep reading, or listening, just to see where it might go next. A hugely talented and original author, this is one not to be missed! My advice, get the novel then the audiobook, it's that good!
