Going Under
  • Going Under

  • The future looks bleak for Aidan Walsh. He stands to lose his job if the last major employer in a dead-end Welsh town closes its factory and relocates to India. Then Aidan hatches a startling plan. He buries himself alive in a coffin in his back garden, announcing that he's not coming back up until everyone's job is saved.

    Slowly but surely, as news of his remarkable protest spreads, people throughout the country begin to warm to his cause.

    So begins a titanic battle of wills between a powerful corporation and an unlikely hero.

Ray French was born in Newport, south Wales, to Irish parents. Since leaving university he has worked with people with disabilities, as a stagehand, labourer, cartoonist, archivist and in libraries. He now lives in Leeds, the Milan of the north, with his partner and their daughter.
