Product description


'A superb tragicomic satire on our soap-opera-saturated culture' -- Sam Mills, author of The Quiddity of Will Self

'a neat idea... a plot full of death and disaster' --The Metro

'Like Sylvia Plath in The Bell Jar or Iain Bank's in The Crow Road the story begins with intimations of death, and although the reader always knows the outcome to this story, the journey there is worth taking... The novel goes along at quite a pace, with all of the confidence, and some of the self-doubt that inflicts every teenager. James Higgerson is a talented writer, with a bright future ahead of him, and will be a name to look out for.' --Newbooks Magazine

'As openers go, the first page of Manchester author James Higgerson's debut novel The Almost Lizard is a real attention-grabber... What follows is a voyage through mental illness in a TV and media-obsessed society.' --The Manchester Evening News

About the Author

James Higgerson is a former music reviewer and has contributed to the anthologies Litmus: Short Stories From Modern Science and Still.
