Damian Lanigan delivers,
This review is from: Stretch, 29 (Paperback)
With a vitriolic wit straddling the Atlantic, Mr. Lanigan gives us Francis Dean Stretch, Oxbridge loser and poster-boy for 90's Britain. "Stretch, 29" will have you laughing out loud and checking your groin for wet spots. Our man Frank Stretch is on cultural surveillance, consistently thrashing his class-conscious peers, while offering readers some frank observations about life in ol' blighty. Frank indulges in his own misery, but hey, nobody said being English was easy.
Though some American readers may find the slang bewildering and the ending ponderous, Mr. Lanigan's writing talents (to use my American vernacular) kick-ass. With gems like, "Sometimes, unavoidably, I would become aroused by all the noise, and nick a dingy onanistic biscuit from his erotic banqueting table," a new literary talent is here. This Yank is ready for more: bring on "The Other Side of Patrick Moon."
