"Ever heard of Mark Wilson? 'Little Giggsy'? Well, WHOSE fault is THAT?" Mark Wilson's whole life has been about the moment when he steps on to Old Trafford's THEATRE OF DREAMS to make his first appearance for Man Utd. But when a wayward pass from Ryan Giggs leads to THE WORST DEBUT EVER, Mark's schoolboy obsession with him develops into something more dangerous. Fifteen years later, after a career interrupted by drinking, injury, gambling, RESTRAINING ORDERS and burglary, Mark is now sober, gainfully-employed and looking forward to a season of watching United back to their Premier- and CHAMPIONS LEAGUE-WINNING BEST. Most importantly for Mark, he is reconciled with the mother of his son, little Ryan. But as the old urges continue to struggle for voice in his head, can he keep his eye on the goal? A story of LOVE and last-minute chances, BRING ME THE HEAD OF RYAN GIGGS is also a frightening study of a talented fantasist. Told with wonderful variation of voice, the novel blends fact and fiction to masterfully examine how a man's adoration and idolisation of another man goes terribly wrong.
