‘Cityboy’ by Cityboy
He’s every brash, bespoke-suited FT-carrying idiot who pushed past you on the tube. He’s the egotistical buffoon who loudly brags about how much cash he’s made on the market at otherwise pleasant dinner parties. He’s the greedy, ruthless wanker whose actions are helping turn this world into the shit-hole it’s rapidly becoming.
For a period in my life he was me”
My book should be in all good bookshops on 26th June, 2008. Below is an excerpt from the prologue which hopefully will give an indication of its tone. I may be going down but I’m gonna bring down the City with me IF IT’S THE LAST EFFING THING I DO!
“Sitting here listening to the gentle sound of waves lapping on the shore, with a glass of chai in one hand and a joint in another; I am comforted by the realisation that this is payback time. I’m going to break the code of silence that governs everyone in the Square Mile and reveal what really makes the City tick. I want to illuminate the murky underbelly of this tight-knit club that is solely dedicated to making its members as much as money as humanly possible. I want to expose the City’s many vices to ‘civilians’ who are purposefully kept in the dark so that greedy Cityboys can perpetuate their own privileged lifestyles.
As for me, I gain strength from Nietzsche’s adage ‘that which does not kill you makes you stronger’. And after all the shit I went through in that ridiculous business I must be the strongest motherfucker in town.”
