Compression tells the story of Flanagan, a man who, having cracked the music business with the punk band he started while at school, returns to a reunion in the small town in which he grew up. However, returning to his old stamping ground brings back a lot of memories, many of them disturbing, and some pertaining to his part in the death of a homeless man.
Things get really complicated when it transpires that the police investigation has just re-opened…
Here is what just some of the reviewers say:
'I loved the narrative and the way the author highlights the life of a punk celebrity'.
'In a word, Tim Cundle’s Compression is gritty'.
'Goddamn, does Tim Cundle know how to twist that literary knife'.
‘I found myself absorbed after the first few pages and it’s a solid piece of work’.
