I used to read Dan Dalton's Buzzfeed articles avidly, and always connected with his style - particularly when he'd write about relationships. He manages to find that sweet spot between heartbreak and humour, and JOHNNY RUIN, his first novel, is no different. A road trip through the mind of our heartbroken narrator, accompanied by that wise sage, Jon Bon Jovi? That's both bonkers and brilliant, at the same time.
With the spirit of FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS and ON THE ROAD, JOHNNY RUIN is full of heart and imagination by the bucketload.
