About the Author
Paul McDonald was born in Walsall. He left school at sixteen and worked for nearly ten years as a saddlemaker before going to Birmingham Polytechnic. He now teaches English and American Studies at Wolverhampton University. He still lives in Walsall, from where he travels widely in a so far unsuccessful search to find a place that makes his home town look good. Surviving Sting is his first novel.

The story captures the essence of the late 70's, and whilst reading it one finds oneself almost reliving the past. If you are not old enough to remember that particular period in time,fear not....adolescence never really changes.
I advise anyone to buy this book. You will not be disappointed (Even if you have never heard of Walsall). Anyone who comes from the town, should be more proud of this novel than the "World famous" art gallery!
