Product description

Review

'Verhulst's prose is always a delight ... This is a subtle and wonderfully told story' --Financial Times

`Verhulst's gift for imagery is impressive ... the humour is pitch-black and very funny'
--Prospect

`Ceaselessly entertaining ... it bursts with humour and energy that never lets up'
--Bookmunch

'Outrageousness yields to eloquent recognition in this darkly intelligent novel' --Irish Times

'This is a welcome addition to the ranks of literary fiction that find humour, and sometimes poetry, in urban deprivation.' --Independent
