Product description


PRAISE FOR NICK BROOKS'S THE GOOD DEATH: 'Brooks has a good eye for dialogue... a cracking good read' Manchester Evening News

'Brooks's humour is as sharp as one of Kay Scarpetta's scalpels, it slices through a tale that is sometimes disgusting, occasionally bewildering but always absorbing' --Louise Welsh


'Loads of assurance, buckets of colour, packed with beautifully etched observation and piles of raw honesty - this is a debut that keeps you wide-eyed with admiration - I loved its bravura - a compact gem.' Scotsman

'It's a strange, funny and capricious book - it will make you sad, but it will also make you laugh out loud.' --Belfast Telegraph

'...Grace narrates indecent acts using her own rules of grammar and spelling. Grace is illiterate so her unconventional writing style is initially hard to follow. Once the reader settles in, though, the story flows with its own inevitability. Grace is unintentionally funny and surprisingly insightful, and the pathos of her life is simultaneously hard to read and compelling. The reader can t help but wish for better for Grace: better self-esteem, better support, and better choices. The poetry of her simple language will stick with the reader long after the book ends.' [****] --San Francisco Book Review
