Now available for the first time in the UK, Walker Ryan's novel Top Of Mason.
Henry Phillip is a 29 year old used-to-be sponsored am who finds himself 29 years old, cleaning hotel rooms and newly single after breaking up with the girl of his dreams. His old crew's lives have gone in polar opposite directions. Dev is a multi millionaire superstar skater, and Gary is an addict living on the streets hustling to get by day to day. Henry had lost touch with both but suddenly finds them both back in his life.
"I like to think that this is the first novel set in the world of modern professional skateboarding. But it isn’t really about skateboarding. It’s an adventure story about a guy trying to get over a break up—intersecting the worlds of skateboarding, contemporary celebrity, and homelessness—all the while dealing with a late-twenties identity crisis. All the characters are fictional, but it’s inspired by my love for San Francisco and my appreciation for the many unique individuals I’ve met through skateboarding."
Paperback, 253 pages, cover art by Sebo Walker.
Super easy to read, very difficult to put down. 2021 is going to be the year of the skateboard novel, Top Of Mason is a great way to start it!
