AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Dougie Lucas was once a football star who made the crowd roar, the fans sing and the commentators reach for superlatives. He was not just good, he was better than good. But once his career on the field was over, what was to happen to him?

'On one night, 20 years after his playing days have finished, Doug is still desperately seeking the satisfaction he once had. Does his ex-wife still care for him? Does he know how to talk to his son, now trying to follow in his footsteps? Does his fame still attract the women like it once did? Is he good at anything else?

'Doug has to face the possibility that his obsession with his own talents has driven others away from him.'
