|| Si is 28 and unsure of what he wants-in his job, his love life, even just for dinner. The only thing he's certain of is his friendship with Jimmy, a late-twenties professional footballer in a career he fears has stalled. Through their uncertainty and just plain lethargy, the two men anchor each other with regular catch-ups at their local, The Feathers.But little do they know that The Feathers is more than just a great place for a pint and a chin-wag; it's also a hub for a London-based IRA cell. Plans are being formed-dangerous ones-while Si and Jimmy drink away their quarter-life crises. And just as the guys start to get everything figured out-against the roller-coaster backdrop of Manchester United's Double Double season, and the media and politics of mid-1990s Britain-something happens that threatens to blow it all up.In Pieces-the thinking man's Bridget Jones's Diary.
