One man's journey, from fatherless, poverty-stricken child growing up in an unlovely Scottish fishing village in the 70s, through teenage angst, falling in love, going to London, living in squats, a spot of male prostitution on the side, to fabulously wealthy, feted Young British Artist, the most notorious of his generation: WEST COAST is the unputdownable, epic story of Fergus MacFarlane.
It's for anyone who has ever dreamed of escaping their small town, of making it big, of leaving everything behind...And what can happen to you when you get all of that and realise that perhaps, after all, it's not really worth it.
