A humorous rite of passage novel set in 1960s Norfolk, during an era of glorious music.
Off the Mark charts the progress of mark Barker, who at sixteen years old leaves an all-boys' Grammer School with absolutely no experience of girls or, indeed the world as a whole.
Mark's first foray into the world of work is at an office in a time before computers. His first job also launches him into the presence of girls. As a very shy youth who lacks confidence in his ability to attract the opposite sex, he ends up forming attractions to all the wrong girls - for all the wrong reasons.
Unsuccessful blind dates and foursomes only serve to exacerbate the loneliness of this sensitive teenager, as he scrapes through to manhood - luckily his sense of humour pulls him through.
