Meet Simon Haines.
For a decade he has been chasing his dream: partnership at the legendary, family-run law firm of Fiennes & Plunkett. The gruelling hours have come close to breaking him, but now he is within a whisker of his millions: in less than two weeks, he will know the outcome of the partnership vote. He decides to spend the wait in Cuba in an attempt to rediscover his youthful enthusiasm and curiosity, and to clear his mind before the arrival of the news from London. But alone in Havana he becomes lost in nostalgia and begins to relive his past...
A story of aspiration and self-doubt, conflict and love, Being Simon Haines paints a realistic, often humorous picture
of a generation of young professionals in search of validation.
