A clumsy wannabe rock star from an obscure Eastern European country decides to sort out his dire financial situation by taking up carpentry in the Land of Milk and Honey, aka the UK. London might be his love at first sight, yet a love unrequited. No money + no business visa + no English + no job skills = no job. Food comes from rubbish bins, rent money from busking. Things are rough. When his first carpentry assignment comes, it is to hide a corpse in concrete, and it only gets rougher from here…

William B. Foreignerski, as his name suggests, is a foreigner. He came to the UK to find work, earn a pound and then leave. Instead, he learned the local language and stayed, charmed by the country and its people.

Is he a gain for the economy? Read the book and decide yourself.

    I don't read novels much any more but this is a great read. Easy to get into and it describes with the warmth of character, the uncertainties & anxieties of working in the UK & Ireland as an illegal immigrant. I happen to have worked abroad casually, so this topic spoke to me but this is a good book to read to get insight into what it might be like to try to improve one's circumstances without having a fortuitous stamp in your passport.
