A surreal and fantastical story. Power-prams, Grand Design knock-throughs, organic everything. A family are rushed to hospital with festival fatigue. A work-shy writer discovers a Victorian man living in the wall of his flat. Everyone's pretty surprised. Adjustments need to be made. Can the strange visitor unlock his hopeless career? His flagging relationship? A story buried in these walls for over a century? (Doubt it. Maybe. Yes.) Contains jokes, songs, banging on recycling boxes, and a Nigerian.
