"It is dark, dirty, grim and confusing – in a very good way. It’s also warm, humane, funny and mischievous, and all the pages are in the right order." (Jeremy Hardy)
A darkly funny novel about an egomaniacal addict who learns the hard way that the only thing worse than waking up with a hangover from hell is waking up with a hangover in hell.See all Product description

Here is a thing I don't say lightly: Portions of this book are written in the imagined voice of Dorothy Parker, and the laugh lines in them are as good as hers would have been. The gentle tweaking of Hemingway, Doyle and several others is dead-on and hilarious. The many sections of the book written in Mr. Davies' own literary voice are equally brilliant, filled with hundreds of little insights you immediately wish you'd thought of yourself and clever lines you immediately want to steal. And it contains the best Samuel Taylor Coleridge joke since Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency.
All of the above, incidentally, is roughly what I'd been led to expect from this book going in.Read more ›
