"A dark comedy of obsession"
For whatever reason you have happened here, I urge you to read this first novel. It's a quirky, clever, dark comedy of provincial manners, obsession and sexual betrayal. It's told by three protagonists, friends and lovers when they were young, who invite us to sift through their longing, posturing, doubt and self justification to arrive at our own assessment of what really happened between them when they were young in the eighties in a Norfolk seaside town. It's both a detective story of sorts and a reflection on social values; a kind of bitter Le Grand Meaulnes, with a disturbing aftertaste that lingers long after the last page.
