Joe Noone is a degenerate and enthusiastic explorer of the gutter. Fire Horses views England over the last 25 years, from small town to the grimy metropolitan underbelly, through the eyes and lens of one deeply troubled individual and his complex relationships with his childhood friend and the women in his life. Laced with dark humour, poetic beauty and angry political asides, Fire Horses is an unflinching lesson in modern history. An epic love story about ordinary people, the novel is an examination of the pain-inducing traps we can set for ourselves in life and how and whether we can escape them.
