Abstract:

Liam Kelly is the very model of the modern male - boys want to be him, girls want to be with him. He and his group of loyal mates spend their days driving around town, drinking beer and very occasionally going to lectures. His good looks compensate, everyone agrees, for his superior attitude and rivate-school arrogance. Liam and his girlfriend Sara seem to be the perfect couple, but when she leaves for a European trip without him the facade begins to crumble. He sees six months of freedom ahead, unaware that the consequences of his bad-boy behavior will threaten the image he has so carefully created. Metro is a satirical tale of morality, masculinity and money from the internationally acclaimed author of Sushi Central.
