Comeuppance by Nigel Gordon

Recommended Posts

Another delightful tale from Nigel. In a setting to be found in most towns north of the Severn- Trent line and parts of Auz - the working men's club. Establishments not normally recognised as fertile ground for the kind of stories posted here.

I also was very impressed with the distinct "voice" that the first-person narrator presented. It was a complex blend of sophistication, jadedness, and mocking while not sounding like a pompous ass or an arrogant snot. And of course his action in the club at the end would certainly redeem any issues about him. Indeed, I suppose if there was one term that might be used to describe him, it would be "problem solver."

loved it. The Conservative Club in our village was entirely working class Labour. At Xmas, members got 72 free pints, about a weeks worth. In summer they did a coach trip to the seaside, it had to be police cleared because 74 coaches caused gridlock on small country roads. It was the centre of village life
