On a Midwinter's day in Iowa in 1996, Scottish poet Andrew Younger steps from his office on a university campus and is engulfed by a severe blizzard. Lost and disorientated, Andrew muses upon the events which have led to him being stranded alone, so far away from home.But what could have felt dry was, in fact, an engaging and lyrical description of one man's life.
Kris: Do you mind me asking your age?
Andrew: I really don't mind you asking, but I don't have to tell you
Andrew: Why is it important?
Kris: Creates a picture for our listeners
Andrew: Cats don't shiver!
Lorna: You tell him! You are shivering aren't you darling! Your fur's all jaggered. That bastard of a poet cares for nobody but himself. Easy!
Andrew: I hate the way you utterly sentimentalise animals.
Lorna: Well then you can piss off back to your own place.
Andrew: It's chucking it down out there.
Lorna: I don't think you quite get the mood I'm in Andrew. Please get out of my sight!
Andrew: You can be so obdurate sometimes.
Lorna: Oh, obdurate! Well you know what you can do with your obdurate!
