A wildly funny satire of book culture written by a former bookseller with a story to tell.
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 She investigates, finding help in the unlikely form of Richard Anger: independent bookshop owner, avant garde (unpublished) short story writer and borderline alcoholic.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.
Playful, unruly and bursting with generous energy
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
Rich in wry social commentary, funny and linguistically dextrous
A marvellously observed [and] accomplished first novel
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.
