1980: Billy 'Kid' Glover is seeing things in triplicate and the doc prescribes a rest cure. When he returns to Yorkshire, 'Vienna' is on the radio and, although subtle, there have been some changes. The seventies have given way to a new decade and the young folk of the old town are waiting in the cold for the opportunities that might come with it. The change is slow and not always welcome. The pits are being closed and the police can't catch the Ripper. But Ziggy Hero, David Bowie impersonator and ghost rider is planning a gig. He will prove that some things really are worth waiting for. Sex, drugs and ropey pubs: Harland Miller's unconventional rites-of-passage novel. Slow Down Arthur, Stick to Thirty is the story of a kid who travels around northern England with a David Bowie impersonator.
