From the publisher

'I had this vision very clearly of a book in which I would record my total experience, and I knew how it should sound: with all the tones that no one ever admires, - the Gruesome, Tender, Needy, Sleazy, Boring, the Lurid and the Cute.'

In this way the hero of Adam Thirlwell's new novel describes the book you hold between your hands: a delirious tale of backchat and low tricks, all of which begin when our hero wakes beside a woman who is bleeding, unconscious and not, unfortunately, his wife... And then, of course, events get very much worse.
