Review

"The tenor of the stories ranges from arch to sneering, and the humour comes in any colour so long as it s black" (Alfred Hickling, Guardian)

"'Beautifully drawn characters - Hayles writes with such cold-blooded precision'" (Guardian)

"'A very funny book - in the best traditions of the last few decades of British comedy - I can't recommend this enough'" (Time Out)

"'A collection of slick thrills, arch references and cunning gags'" (Independent on Sunday)

"'Tasty, addictive-one day, all literature will be made this way'" (The Face)

Book Description

'A very funny book- in the best traditions of the last few decades of British comedy- I can't recommend this enough' Time Out

Format: Paperback
His stories are immediately engaging, dark and always funny. I was often laughing on the Tube while reading this thus causing alarm to my fellow passengers, especially when they read the title of the book.
Try to imagine Dan Rhodes' 'Anthropology' fleshed with a twist of Brass Eye and you'd be close, but not quite there. The originality of thought is refreshing.
Not for the easily offended though!

I rarely bother writing reviews on here, but I just felt it had to be said that this is quite possibly the worst book I've ever read. If you're looking for something 'surreal' and darkly comic, look elsewhere, this is just ameteurish and bland, displaying no originality whatsoever, simply making pitiful attempts to shock that don't come off. It's a wonder how this was ever published.

I loved these stories, short, sharp and to the point. I lent it to a friend and she loves them so now I can't get the book back. My favourite was Orson Beadle, a travelling salesman who goes into a pub full of drunks and sells them - no, I won't say, read it for yourself! And Doctor Octor - that is a scream. More please!
