A Brief History Of Tim

Tim Renkow has cerebral palsy. Which means that people judge him...all the time. But usually they judge him wrongly. Because what they don't realise is that inside that severely disabled, fragile body is a bit of an asshole.

Tim knows he makes people uncomfortable - he does it on purpose. He knows his cerebral palsy means he can get away with saying what others can't. But that's his problem: time spent taking aim at life's easier targets means Tim takes his eye of its bigger prizes: the job, the girl and the visa.
