Snow Blind is a viciously funny novel with a moral. It lifts the lid on male relationships and asks whether men ever truly grow up. More importantly, what impact is this having on the legacy we leave our kids?

Dan Greenhenge is sliding uncontrollably towards the dual dangers of a gaping ice-blue crevasse and a marriage of convenience. This 40-year old music obsessed copywriter is a lovely, but hapless man, his survival will be determined by whether he can finally take responsibility for himself.

Richard Blanchard’s début novel takes place over an extended stag ski weekend in Chamonix, France, below the peaks of Mont Blanc. Dan is under pressure from every angle. First his son Bepe is in a life threatening accident at Manchester Airport, and then there is Robert, an estranged college friend who disrespects everything Dan is, who leads the stag party astray. Dan’s boss has heaped work on him, to try to save their advertising agency. But his biggest worry is the presence of Juliet, the ‘love of his lifetime’ ex-girlfriend who has wrangled her way into the weekend, an honorary stag-ette on a mission.
