Cormac McCarthy, Willy Vlautin, Raymond Carver, Benjamin Myers. This book gives us a writer that sits with the best in this type of genre. I could not put this down, so desperate to find out what happens to the loveable and naive John-John. It portrays the traveller life from different views, the good and the bad. It also really describes the fear and aggression from 'those estates' that we all have, in every city. The prose was beautiful, the storyline gripping and I'm not even going to go into the plot because you just need to go and read it yourself. I was hooked by the first page. This book screams 'British Film'.
