About the book

Two holidaymakers die of a mysterious condition while on holiday in Corfu, piquing neurologist Lauren Furrows's interest. She investigates, finding help in the unlikely form of Richard Anger: independent bookshop owner, avant garde (unpublished) short story writer and borderline alcoholic. Together they discover the killer: best-selling author Gary Sayles and his insipid novels. Will they be able to stop him before millions die?

Wildly humorous, this is a book that will challenge and play with your brain, wryly.

About the author

Charlie Hill is a writer from Birmingham. His first novel was recently described as 'an inventive debut' by the Observer and 'wonderfully observed' by The Times. His short stories have appeared in Ambit, Stand and The View From Here.


Playful, unruly and bursting with generous energy

- Jim Crace

Praise for The Space Between Things: 'The Space Between Things vividly captures a moment in Britain's recent past, and takes us inside a world and a milieu which most readers won't have known before. And as a tragic love story it packs a considerable punch

- Jonathan Coe

Rich in wry social commentary, funny and linguistically dextrous

- Observer

A marvellously observed [and] accomplished first novel

- The Times

The comic extremes of the plot are anchored by credible central characters and a tone that stays on the right side of wacky. Books is an entertaining, pacy read that should not have any adverse effects on your own brain.
