Freshers




The world of student life has been neglected by novelists - until Kevin Sampson's Freshers

Kit Hannah is about to start University. He's funny, clever and popular, but he's harbouring a dark foreboding he dare not share with anyone. And it's with a heavy heart that he leaves home to begin a new life. At the vast Halls of Residence he can be the life and soul of the party - and there are lots of parties, lots of sex, lots of bad behaviour. Kit is naughty, witty and compassionate and everyone wants to be his friend. But more often than not he withholds that friendship and retreats from the gang - including Benny Bull, a pathological liar from Dudley; Adrian Dangerous, an achievement-driven fitness fanatic; Alex, a ballsy exchange student from Memphis; laid-back Simon; and Petra from Stirling, who wants nothing more than Kit - although Kit sees her more as a friend. The object of his affections is Colette - yet whenever Kit gets close to her, something seems to hold him back.
