STEVE SMITH has two obsessions: women and nightclubs. He spends his childhood picking up fragments of knowledge about both of these through a series of picaresque adventures which leave him with an insatiable curiosity to breach the hallowed walls of his small-town's only nightclub. Steve's story is a microcosm of the culture that pervades England's nightscapes. It seeks to deconstruct this world and delineate the euphoria of its winners and abject depressions of its losers. Merging a range of styles, including poetry, play-scripts and prose, Unreal City is a journey of discovery and despair, one that an increasing number of us are still making.
