Product description

Review

'In this disquieting novel, Lee explores how briskly the pleasures that we take for granted can vanish... Lee's writing pulses with humour and an appreciation of the abject silliness of human beings... He writes with a needle, and with a short-story master's eye for structure' -- Sunday Times

'A quietly brilliant novel' --Metro

'Darkly comic fun... [a] compelling mystery' -- Guardian

'Lee's deft, gripping portrait of the dark side of suburbia is a masterclass in slow-build creepiness' -- Stylist

'A slim shiver of dread and paranoia, Tom Lee's superb debut novel explores the darkness that exists millimetres beneath the seemingly normal, regular world. It is a read-in-one sitting fable of considerable power and skill' --Stuart Evers

'Politely calamitous and deeply affecting. Tom Lee can actually do what many writers think they can do' -- Cynan Jones

'This is contemporary suburban noir, which, with a wry touch and a lopsided wink to Revolutionary Road, skilfully lures you into a delicately creeping nightmare' --Ross Raisin

About the Author

Tom Lee's writing has appeared in the Sunday Times, Esquire and Prospect in the UK, the Dublin Review in Ireland and in Francis Ford Coppola's Zoetrope All Story in the United States, among others. In 2012 he was shortlisted for the Sunday Times EFG Private Bank Short Story Award. He currently teaches undergraduate and postgraduate creative writing at Goldsmiths College.
