Growing up in a working class area of Reading with the mad-cap Doonan clan - Mother Betty, Father Terry, blind Aunt Phyllis, grandmother Narg and Grandfather D.C. - he yearned to get out and find the Beautiful People whom he imagined lived fabulous lives of glitz and glamour. This is the story of how Simon eventually finds a way out and escapes to London with best friend Biddie Biddlecombe.

Or could they be the ones he left behind...?
