Product description

Review

a piece of staggeringly energetic intellectual slapstick . . . it's crammed with strange, funny and interesting things (Sam Leith, Guardian)

an enjoyable confection; witty, ludicrous and entertaining (James Urquhart, Financial Times)

An astonishing debut...buzzing with energy, fizzing with ideas, intoxicating in its language, Boxer, Beetle is sexy, intelligent and deliriously funny (Jake Arnott)

A rambunctious, deftly-plotted delight of a debut (Observer)

Ned Beauman's astonishingly assured debut starts as it means to go on: confident, droll, and not in the best of taste . . . Many first novels are judged promising. Boxer, Beetle arrives fully formed: original, exhilarating and hugely enjoyable. (Peter Parker, Sunday Times)

Frighteningly assured (Katie Guest, Independent on Sunday)

Exuberant . . . There are politics, black comedy, experimentation and wild originality - and I haven't even got to the beetles. Terrific. (The Times)

Debut bout is a real knockout . . . dazzling (Daily Express)

Its ambitions are enormous, in terms of the range, energy and quality of the writing (Literary Review)

Dazzling . . . As in PG Wodehouse and the early Martin Amis the tone is mischievous and impudent without being merely jaunty or wacky . . . in Erksine and Broom we have two endlessly curious heroes whose thoughts are fascinating even at their silliest. (Leo Robson, Express)

Book Description

The wildly compelling, award-winning debut novel from the author of THE TELEPORTATION ACCIDENT.
