Product description

Review

"[Submarine] has a poignant undertow, along with [a] wealth of excruciatingly funny incidents and cracking gags...a richly amusing tale of mock GCSEs, sex, death and challenging vocabulary" -- Time Out

"Joe Dunthorne's cheerfully peculiar 15-year old narrator is a worthy successor to Adrian Mole...Funny, in a deadpan way. This feels like an authentic portrait of someone floundering around in an attempt to discover his own identity as he grows up" -- The Guardian

"Oliver's anxieties are so well observed as to make you wince...Dunthorne commands wordplay like a mature poet and imagines foreplay like a teenage boy" -- Financial Times

"This first novel by a young Welsh poet is the sharpest, funniest, rudest account of a periodically troubled teenager's coming-of-age since The Catcher in the Rye... This brilliant novel is laugh-out-loud enjoyable" -- The Independent

"This is a brilliant first novel, by a young man of ferocious comic talent -- Oliver is the finest teenage narrator since Adrian Mole"
-- The Times
