Product description


'Just stunning -- The Earlie King and the Kid in Yellow is a work of dancing brutality and ferocious tenderness, properly wild and utterly welcome' -- Lisa McInerney

'A dystopian baroque, postmodern fairy tale, with gangsters, eternal rain and a contested baby... The world that Denton creates is thrillingly realised' -- Financial Times

'Denton's captivating debut novel, which imagines a grim dystopian Ireland that is all too believable [is] a highly original novel... Mashing ancient myth with a miserable future, Denton's fierce and distinctive debut should set the books world alight' -- Irish Times

'A dazzlingly inventive adventure in the possibilities of storytelling, as the Kid heads into his future, with danger on his heels and a lush, brash lyricism as armour for the upcoming battle' -- Daily Mail

'[With] dizzying playfulness, parts are told by a Death-like figure called Mister Violence, parts in script form [and] spectacular set-pieces... Stylish' --New Statesman

'This book will blow your mind. Written in a hurl of playful poetry and whip-smart prose... Utterly extraordinary, it's best you read it. Right now' -- Emerald Street

'Denton's stylish writing is a gorgeous mash-up of lush lyricism, vivid theatrics and heartfelt emotion' -- Sunday Express

'A great, imaginative cloudburst. Torrential in theme and execution, a mighty debut' -- Mike McCormack

'Denton's cinematically vivid descriptions of this drowned world are among many highlights... The Earlie King and the Kid in Yellow really soars in its style... original, poetic and beguiling' --Irish Independent
