Heavy Years, a book about work and its workings, is a stand-alone sequel to the widely celebrated Light Years. A literary memoir whose satirical edge cuts deep into the chaotic hierarchy of the late twentieth-century NHS, it exists on the frontier of fiction and reality and often through the prism of Young's inimitable philosophic musings. Augustus Young, a freelance researcher turned `Trojan horse' for the wily and eccentric senior consultant Mal Combes, has an idea; simply put, public health should be the foundation upon which politics is built, rather than a means of electioneering. But as he attempts to make his mark on the Kafkaesque inner workings of the NHS, he finds himself increasingly part of the establishment he once set out to challenge.
