`a superb tragicomic satire on our soap-opera-saturated culture' Sam Mills, author of The Quiddity of Will Self
`a neat idea... a plot full of death and disaster' The Metro
Today is Daniel Lizard's twenty-first birthday and he has just completed his autobiography. Now, he plans on killing himself, leaving behind possibly the longest suicide note ever committed to paper.
Daniel creates soap operas in his head - a game that he plays on his paper-round. Rather than a phase, this is just the beginning of a fantasy that becomes more and more elaborate as the people around Daniel become his unwitting co-stars.
Daniel begins to realise that, in life, you cannot write all of the scripts, there is no-one there to shout cut or hit rewind and, inevitably, all manipulations have their repercussions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`a superb tragicomic satire on our soap-opera-saturated culture' -- Sam Mills, author of The Quiddity of Will Self
`a neat idea... a plot full of death and disaster' -- The Metro * Pick of Indie Fiction for the week *
'Like Sylvia Plath in The Bell Jar or Iain Bank's in The Crow Road the story begins with intimations of death, and although the reader always knows the outcome to this story, the journey there is worth taking... The novel goes along at quite a pace, with all of the confidence, and some of the self-doubt that inflicts every teenager. James Higgerson is a talented writer, with a bright future ahead of him, and will be a name to look out for.' -- Newbooks Magazine
`As openers go, the first page of Manchester author James Higgerson's debut novel The Almost Lizard is a real attention-grabber... What follows is a voyage through mental illness in a TV and media-obsessed society.' -- Manchester Evening News
