Hornbyesque with a touch of Nick Cave's Grinder Man album thrown in ... a hilarious expose of the insane levels of competition between blokes (Daily Mail)
You need know nothing about cards to relish the scabrous black comedy of five such men and their monthly game in Tom Campbell's scintillating debut novel ... he echoes the precise, unbridled nastiness of early 1980s Martin Amis (Metro)
Has the makings of a cult classic ***** (Sun)
A highly entertaining first novel (Oxford Times)
Campbell's sentences have a snap to them ... He makes you want to read the next page. It's as simple as that (Guardian)
Bitingly funny, glitteringly dark and bursting with humanity, Fold is a tale of friendship and rivalry, of jokers and kings, and of learning that it's not the hand that life deals you, but what you do with it that countsSee all Product description

You don't need to know the ins and outs of poker - I certainly don't - but it's a great way of getting inside the characters' heads, and it's a neat trick to have the way they play reveal their personalities. The main narrative concerns Nick's attempts to get one over on the more successful Doug, and this can be seen as a twelve month long hand of poker - he assembles his hand, raises the stakes and finally - but no, that'd be telling....
This is a very enjoyable first novel, and one that really taps into what it's like to be forty and realizing that life hasn't quite turned out the way you thought it would. I can empathise with that. And I bet you can as well.
