Description - Going Under by Ray French

The future looks bleak for Aidan Walsh. He stands to lose his job as the last major employer in a dead-end Welsh town prepares to close its factory and relocate to India. Then Aidan hatches a startling plan. He buries himself alive in a coffin in his back garden, announcing that he s not coming back up until everyone s job is saved. Publicity is everything these days, and Aidan knows he must attract the attention of the media if he is to have a chance. Slowly, people warm to his cause, locally at first, and then from further afield, as news of his remarkable protest travels. And so begins a titanic battle of wills between an unlikely hero and a powerful corporation. Going Under explores the ties of love, friendship, family and community in a story full of humour, human frailty, resourcefulness and ultimately triumph.
