Ladies' man Josiah Joshua Jordan King is a rising star for the Trafford Titans in the new and wildly popular sport of Chicker. But he's also a professional hitman and union buster on behalf of the league's management. With the European Championship final against Barcelona looming, he gets wind of a filthy commie plot to scupper the whole shebang. Can he lead his team to victory while neutralizing the Reds, or will his dreams of international glory be thwarted by a faceless conspiracy that threatens civilization itself?
A mutant cross-breed of Rollerball, The Wicker Man and Chicken Run, Fowl Play is satirist Jay Spencer Green at his weirdest and most outrageous, a laugh-out-loud dark comedy in which the headless chickens are not confined to the farmyard.
BIOGRAPHY Born in the UK but resident in Ireland for more than two decades, Jay Spencer Green has worked as a laborer, hotel dishwasher, truck driver, factory foreman, college lecturer, stand-up comic, court coverer at Wimbledon, stagehand for the Chippendales, correspondence course tutor, and academic database editor. The consequent cornucopia of negative work experiences has provided enough trauma for several novels, which are now being stealthily introduced to the reading public like a slow-release poison. The first, Breakfast at Cannibal Joe's, was voted one of the top ten indie books of 2015 and won the Lord of the Book Covers award. Lisa McInerney, winner of the Bailey's Prize for Fiction, described it as "Savagely funny and deftly anarchic." Ivy Feckett is Looking for Love: A Birmingham Romance was voted Best Indie Comedy of 2016. Green's third novel, Fowl Play, won Best Indie Comedy of 2018. He is currently at work on Manuel Estimulo's Fascist Book of Everything, a comedy about Brexit set in the Canary Islands.
