Patrick Gale's FACING THE TANK is a witty, eccentric novel of clergy, scandal and English eccentrics - 'Made me laugh out loud' Sunday Times'

'Gale speedily unleashes his merrily black mischief. The uncovering of the sadness behind the doilies and twinsets is in the best tradition of black humour' Observer

American Professor Evan Kirby, moving to Barrowcester to research Paradise after a successful book on Hell, expects a very English cathedral society of gentle clergymen and coffee mornings. What he finds instead is a town thrown into chaos by strange, supernatural events, scandalous pregnancies and a Satanic summoning of a young feral girl.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Gale speedily unleashes his merrily black mischief. The uncovering of the sadness behind the doilies and twinsets is in the best tradition of black humour * Observer *
Gale is intoxicated with words and feeds upon them with a kind of manic relish . . . The sheer funniness of Facing the Tank made me laugh out loud. Its optimism delighted me * Sunday Times *
Original and amusing. An elegant, witty writer with an engagingly bizarre imagination * Sunday Telegraph *
A commendably intelligent, entertaining and moving novel * TLS *
