Ruled by a Government that has devised a solution to social problems by incarcerating them under one all-purpose roof, the country has an entire demographic that is invisible to many a blind eye as it turns.

Non-persons whose circumstances have conspired to exclude them from genuine lifestyle choices are out-of-sight, but never out of the minds of those to whom they are an example of what can happen if Alarm Clock Britain oversleeps.Bill is just another non-person barely noticed as he ghosts through a populace in thrall to their portable creature-comforts, a mysterious drifter who himself notices everything- yet when he is noticed, those he comes into contact with see in him an evocation of a moment imbued with such unsullied purity that its contrast with the lives they imagined gave them all they ever needed is dramatic.

Bill’s supernatural ability to provoke inexplicable responses soon places his life in peril as he and his fellow invisible escapee, a disgraced teenage gymnast named Holly Wood, acquire a dangerous visibility and flee the urban jungle on a subconscious quest to locate the real England buried beneath the tawdry trappings of an imposed culture.The society that has no place for Holly and Bill is not unveiled in all its panoramic grotesqueness, but sampled in claustrophobic chunks of interior oppression- only when they escape its toxic pallor do they inhale the wide open spaces of a neglected alternative and begin to discern the lies they were sold.

Those they meet who have already embarked upon the same journey are the eccentric reflections of their repressed contemporaries through an alluring looking-glass- but it is the silent majority that the story gives voice to – the demonised and dispossessed rendered poisonous pariahs via a callous collusion between Westminster and the media.Both a satirical take on the present and a chilling premonition of what can happen when the State persuades its people that the surrender of freedom and liberty is essential to the preservation of boom without bust, ‘Bill Invisible’ is a page-turning adventure through what England is, what it was, and what it could well become.
