How My Light is Spent

How My Light is SpentT0930176724
Every Wednesday evening, Jimmy calls Kitty. For precisely nine minutes. At ?1.20 a minute. Jimmy is 34, lives with his mum and works at Newport's only drive-through doughnut restaurant. Kitty is an adult chat line operator, living in the granny flat of a topiary enthusiast. Things were looking up for Jimmy when he met Kitty for the first time, but then he loses his job and starts to feel a strange tingling in his fingers. Kitty's not a psychologist yet, but she has some theories about why Jimmy has started to disappear. With Kitty's advice and Jimmy trying to reconcile himself to eventual invisibility, this unlikely duo succeed in turning each other's world upside down.
