Product Description


... if you like your poison prickly and pop-cultural, Graffiti My Soul will likely schizzle your nizzle. -- New Statesman

A deliciously subversive, happy-slap of a book. -- Attitude Magazine

A modern-day Hanif Kureishi. -- The Times

Govinden's grasp of the narrative is outstanding... You become totally immersed in Veerapen's world... -- Independent on Sunday


'Outstanding. You become totally immersed.'


'Adolescent cruelty, tenderness and sexual identity flit around Govinden's edgy coming-of-age novel.'

Book Description

Hip, rich, big-hearted and unforgettable

Product Description

This is Surrey, where nothing bad ever happens. Except somehow, 15-year-old Veerapen, half-Tamil, half-Jew and the fastest runner in the school, has just helped bury Moon Suzuki, the girl he loved. His dad has run off with an optician and his mum's going off the rails. Since when did growing up in the suburbs get this complicated?

As the knots of Moon and Veerapen's tragic romance unravel, Niven Govinden brings to life a misfit hero of the school yard, bristling with tenderness, venom and vigour.
