Description - Seeds Of Greatness by Jon Canter

Two friends grow up in a North London Jewish suburb. Jack is wayward and devious and gets expelled from school. David is bright and parent-pleasing and destined for great things. But it s Jack who gets rich and famous as a TV chat-show host, while David earns peanuts working in a Suffolk bookshop. When Jack dies, his widow and publisher commission David to write Jack s authorised biography. David can be relied upon not to dish the dirt about Jack he ll write something nice and bland. But he can t do it. He writes Seeds of Greatness instead. It s the truth about his friendship with Jack. It s got sex and drugs and blackmail and jealousy. It s not what he s been paid to write, and he knows it can never be published. David thinks that by writing the truth he ll get Jack out of his system. But will he ever be free of Jack?
