Summary

The year is 1983, the boom of the video age, and Scott Bradley is 17, unemployed, and on the dole. Drifting through life, he and his friends love nothing more than to sit around drinking, talking about girls, and watching horror movies. But things are about to change.

As the "video nasty" media storm descends, their desire to find a copy of the ultimate horror film - The Evil Dead - is going to lead them to the most significant days of their young lives. As the law tightens and their way of life comes under threat from all quarters, they come to learn what truly matters to them.

A heartfelt story of friendship, loyalty, and youthful rebellion, Dead Leaves is a darkly funny and brutally honest depiction of aimless life in a Midland town and perfectly captures the impact those first few years of video had on a generation.

Highly recommended.

I’ve already read Andrew David Barker’s Dead Leaves in print and instantly become a fan, and this audio version is even better. If you love horror and coming of age ‘80s stories, don’t miss this one!
