Finding that the one-size-fits-all schooling doesn't, Billy Hunt takes his square peg and tries to fit into the round hole that is a multinational oil corporation apprenticeship. Quickly learning that his fellow workers are oblong, oval, triangular and every other shape of peg except round, Billy starts his course of 'bull' at the University of Weird People. After a serious fire, and a short course in enterprise-which on one hand lands him in prison and on the other in a good job, he philanders his way through a 24-hour marriage of convenience, to land in The Falklands. Here he takes the overseas course in coping with mis-shapen, missile-firing ex-pats and inbred native sheep fanciers. Returning to Scotland after doing to The Falklands what the Argies couldn't, he joins the self-important misfits in the insignificant path of life through the eons of time. This book is a hoot, and even more so when you know it is semi-autobiographical.

In The Lost Thread, Rancière debunks the notion of Flaubert, Baudelaire, Conrad, Woolf and Keats as reactionary producers of bourgeois mythologies, and instead foregrounds the egalitarian and democratic impulses of modernist literature.
