We all like to play innocent. But no one is innocent. No one. So does that make us all guilty? Probably.A fatal car accident in a residential area close to a large, red-brick university. To the Emergency Services, a simple case of a skint, carefree and doped student running out of fuel at a busy junction. But why do five ostensibly decent, upstanding and intelligent people, who are primary witnesses to the accident, walk away from the scene? How could two of them, who knew the victim well, turn their backs and disappear into the night?This is a crude and abrasive journey into the world of education, in which knowledge and intellect lead not to a greater understanding of the world around us, but to a deeper frustration at the absence of meaning in our existence.Education is pointless. Love is pointless. Existence is pointless. Words are pointless. This book... is pointless. And Dr Derek Ramsbottom is but an innocent bystander–literally and figuratively. Well... not quite.

Neil Eccles is a father and a linguist with a flawed personality and an obtuse view on people, literature and music. He particularly enjoys running on the fells, listening to music, reading 19th and 20th century French literature and watching people in pubs.

He is 47 years old and this is his first book. He has no idea what he is doing–in writing this book or in life, generally.
