Johnny Come Home Paperback – 1 May 2007. by Jake Arnott (Author).

Jake Arnott's hypnotic, feverish and altogether wonderful Johnny Come Home - his first novel after the brilliant Long Firm trilogy - embraces the unfashionable idea that perhaps real passion simmered behind the platform.

Jake Arnott's hypnotic, feverish and altogether wonderful Johnny Come Home - his first novel after the brilliant Long Firm trilogy - embraces the unfashionable idea that perhaps real passion simmered behind the platform shoes and glitter make-up; that beneath the enervating malaise was a vital, electrifying anger. Johnny Chrome discovers that he can't go onstage, can't perform at all, unless Sweet Thing is with him. And Sweet Thing begins to wonder, dangerously, who he might be underneath the make-up. The road leads to tragedy, but Arnott doesn't take the expected avenues, and the ending manages to be both devastating and optimistic.

Johnny Come Home is a beautifully observed and brilliantly paced book. As in his best-selling Long Firm trilogy, it is Arnott's evocation of period that constitutes his strongest suit as a writer. He is utterly convincing in his depiction of the quirks of an era in which drug-dealers sell "dope in ounces and speed in grams" and Biba is the easiest place to shoplift in London
