Mickey Braddock’s Works Do

Graham Wilson

Nine dark and funny short stories make up Mickey Braddock’s Works Do. Set largely in the pubs of a small northern textile town, they reflect the underbelly of Thatcher’s Britain — a time when the old, straightforward breed of rogue was being replaced by a new, more sinister version. From free-loaders who gatecash funerals, to displaced psychiatric patients, from crooked estate agents to a man tyrannised by words, Wilson’s world is by turns riotous, sombre and menacing.

Picaresque in nature, the stories are inhabited by quirky characters, with a tendency to congregate in the local alehouses, sometimes earning their livings by means less than legal.
