LAIRIES is the brilliant and brutal debut from Steve Hollyman, mapping the lives of violent young men at the start of the twenty-first century, living aimlessly but desperately hunting for purpose. Hollyman speaks to the heart of small-town Britain, offering scathing insight into masculinity, class, and the bleak realities of a man’s aimless early twenties, lifting the lid on a world most would rather ignore.

    Fantastic debut by Steve Hollyman. A superb read that will complete engross you. Set in the early noughties, it is set around a violent incident in a nightclub.It is a story of male violence and bravado and weakness told with deftness and skill. Brilliantly written, and completely enthralling. Rattled through it in a few days and this will stick with me.
