Product description

Review

A coming-of-age story as strange and surprising, in its way, as THE CATCHER IN THE RYE (New York Times)

Cowan's writing is reminiscent of Roddy Doyle's in his ability to recreate the intense emotions of youth. (The Good Book Guide)

A first novel of extraordinary poise and accomplishment, treating a boy's coming of age amid the squalid realities of the new British underclass with a delicacy and lyricism which is both gripping and moving (Michael Dibdin)

The detail is immaculately recorded; the effect is heartbreaking (Louisa Young, Sunday Times)

[A] wholly satisfying book, quietly beautiful and inescapably ominous (David Buckley, Observer)

Beautifully evoked ... Cowan writes with a deceptive simplicity (Amanda Craig, The Times)

A wonderful first novel (Christopher Hart, Daily Telegraph) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

Cowan's beautifully drawn, multi award-winning first novel of love in the hostile climate of modern British society --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
