Waterstones Says

Dauntlessly original and engrossing, Brat follows a writer's slow descent into delirium as he is tasked with sorting out his dead parents' possessions.

'I was in the waiting room. Then I was in the examination room.'

Gabriel’s skin is falling off. His dad is dead. He owes his editor a novel. His girlfriend won’t answer his calls.

Tasked by his horribly well-adjusted brother with clearing out the family home for sale, Gabriel’s sanity quickly begins to unravel. His parents’ old manuscripts appear to change each time he reads them.

A bizarre home video hints at long-buried secrets. And there’s a hideous man in the garden. From a stunningly original new talent, this is a debut novel unlike anything you have read.

“Absolutely bonkers!”

What did I just read?! This was an absolute fever dream of a book, disjointed, bonkers and utterly unputdownable! I felt like I was descending into pure madness alongside our main character and although we don't... More

“J. G. Ballard meets Bret Easton Ellis - An Instant Cult Classic”

The novel as self-inserted metafiction, in which the author is also the main character of the novel and writes their own story, is one I often criticise as, when not done with deft skill, it has the potential to feel... More
