Harry Brinkman's head is in a noose.



His pension has been slashed, his wife is having an affair, his misguided children are beyond his control.



With more to regret than savour in his past, and more to fear than look forward to in his future, Harry opts to end his life.



But as he's tying the rope to the beam, he's interrupted by a cold-caller who urges him to think again. The act of resistance, she says, matters more than anything it achieves. With his beautiful Chechen cleaner crunching up the drive, and his 'surprise' sixtieth birthday party looming as a deadline, Harry decides to pack the rope away and give the cold caller's advice a try.


Towards the Sun is the wry, heart-warming story of one man's vainglorious attempt to right the wrongs in his life.
