5.0 out of 5 stars A great present, 22 Oct. 2007
If Dave Eggers, Dan Rhodes and Miranda July had three way sex and spawned a child who was brought up by the backward talking dwarf in twin peaks and Vic Reeves, with Ivor Cutler as his uncle, that goes someway to explain David Gaffney and the weird world he creates with these stories. I had to read a couple of them again to get the idea, but re-experiencing them is like watching a Simpsons repeat and seeing a dozens more jokes you missed first time round. Tightly structured and densely packed with juicy goodies, they are a great read, and in this deliciously designed hardback, make a great present too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A spoonful weighs a ton, 2 Sept. 2006
Gaffney's stories get under your skin, up your nose and, like literary ferrets, down your trousers. The plots are uncanny, often surreal; a man falls out with his barber over a pricing policy, another has a thing for female shoplifters, a station announcer inspires love in her listeners, and a competition to win a private concert by the Sugar Babes goes disastrously wrong. In dozens of scenes involving hundreds of characters, Gaffney in his deader than deadpan way, weaves a complex picture from joy and darkness in equal parts. They will have you laughing like at a Tommy Cooper video though you know that there's something hideous gnawing at the door to get in.
