Shea and Orwell wish they were born to different parents.

For a start, they named their sons after the radical icons of their youth: Shea after Che Guevara and Orwell as in George. But when Shea, now a disaffected, footloose, 30-year-old, discovers his father hanging from a light fitting in the study of their prim New Forest home on Boxing Day, he is determined to find out what caused him to quit.

His family is quintessentially comfortable, Blairite and middle-class; his father was a BBC weatherman, who defied his working-class roots to achieve celebrity. Who or what could possibly have cast so dark a cloud over their lives?

Brutally funny, highly charged and compulsively readable, It's What He Would've Wanted is one man's attempt to piece together a world fractured by alienation, paranoia and conflict. Often moving, elegiac and deeply felt, this is Sean Hughes at the height of his considerable storytelling powers.
