Orphan, son, brother, friend, husband, father, workaholic, alcoholic, music journalist and occasional hero; Tom Kinsella lives life to the full despite a tragic past.
In Bobby's Boy, Tom travels the length and breadth of Europe and the USA and generally has the time of his life. Along the way walks in his father's shoes, puts a few old ghosts to rest and learns to accept that he's not all bad.
With a few twists and turns, plenty of Scottish humour, some romance, a few tears and some fun along the way, Bobby's Boy explores the limits of what a person can achieve with the power of determination and how love can make all the difference in a person's life.
Set in the 1970s through to the early twenty-first century and in Paris, London, LA, New York and Bellshill, Bobby's Boy is the tale of one young man's determination to rise above loss and tragedy to build a successful life for himself.
