Review

'An original and well-received debut' -- Publishing News

'Bizarre, compelling and totally original in structure. Not only a dynamic debut but, more importantly, a cracking good read' -- Luton on Sunday

'Blackbox is an intense conceptual comic thriller. It's very skilfully done' -- Big Issue

'Brilliantly developed... Darkly comic' -- Independent

'Funny, black as soot and totally fascinating' -- Big Issue in the North

'Nicely judged blend of black comedy and mystery...morbidly funny' -- Leeds Guide

'Nick Walker's Blackbox is the best first novel I've read for a while: original, intelligent, compelling and written in perfect bite-sized chunks’ -- Patrick Neate, Guardian

'One of the year's outstanding debuts' -- Time Out

‘Admirable...moving’ -- Observer

‘Walker offers an active imagination, wild morbidity, a sense of Ballardian mythology and wonder... prose of pared distinction’ -- Guardian --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
