Out of university and out of luck, Ben Hamilton moves back in with his parents to stack shelves at the local supermarket. There he meets a group of friends and quickly finds himself dragged into secrecy, heavy drinking, and a violent feud. Trouble flares as the boys test the limits of their own behaviour, small-town mentalities and childhood dreams, before a startling climax as some innocent flirting leads to something much darker. Shop Front is more than the story of an unlucky graduate struggling to find his way: it is a story of violence, working life, friendship and A&E.

About the Author

Samuel Best grew up in a small town in central Scotland, writing stories about boys on fire and what would happen if the sun went out. He studied creative writing at the University of Strathclyde, where he began writing his first novel, Shop Front. Between chapters, Samuel's shorter fiction has been published in the likes of Little Fiction, Frostwriting, The Cadaverine, and Industry Night. After graduating, Samuel helped set up Octavius, a literary magazine for students, and he has appeared at book festivals and in schools across Scotland.
