Charlie is a Nietsche-reading slacker who worries more about how his is perceived by others than by how he actually feels. He dreams of being a rock star and tries to bed as many women as possible. You get the picture.
But Pull Yourself Together is more than the tale of a self-proclaimed wimp. The story reads like a Wes Anderson - with every shot considered and carefully presented, and a cast of quirky, fascinating characters.
As Charlie faces his comeuppance, the book galvanises around him; the story is one of redemption, and is at times funny, moving and sad. I highly recommend this new voice.
