about

It's 2008 and Jeremy Stubbles (or 'Stubbsy' as he's better known) is due to turn 30. Born and bred in Cowes, Isle of Wight, he lives a bachelor existence in his Art Deco flat overlooking the Solent. He is the proud owner of a floor-shaking Wurlitzer Bubbler jukebox, a retro king-sized water-bed, last season's Musto jacket and a Ford Scorpio that is lovingly valeted as soon as the suggestion of a speck of dust mars its finish. Despite these enviable assets, he never seems to quite succeed in enticing eligible young women back to his flat to admire the view from the bedroom. Maybe it's the eccentric behaviour of Nobby and Bobby, his African grey parrots? Or Angela, his cleaner, who feels that having a tidy fridge would do wonders for Stubbsy's love-life?But Stubbsy's life is about to change when the delectable Judith Onions arrives on the scene...In this comic novel, Peter Broadbent perfectly captures the spirit of life on the Island - from the realities of the Isle of Wight Festival, Cowes Week and the Brambles Bank cricket match, to the fantasies of the arm-wrestling championship, the 'Thong in Cheek' underwear boutique, and skinny-dipping in the Medina.
