A dazzling tale, told with great humour, of the last seconds of a man's life as he leaps from a nine-storey building. Matthew Viss works for the city's premier concierge service. Whatever you need, he can provide. And he'll do it with a smile. He just wants to help - that's all he's ever wanted to do. The Greatest Gift is the story of his downfall. "Leigh's prose is discomforting, his free-form style a reflection of Matthew's free-falling life, and there are echoes of Chuck 'Fight-Club' Palahniuk ...A complex, affecting debut, suggesting the emergence of an exciting talent." (Daily Mail). "The Greatest Gift, a withering report on the emptiness and narcissism of the corporate world ...Leigh has steered away from the familiar territory of the first-time novelist ...and delivered something more distinctive. What looks like a satire on contemporary office life becomes an allegory about loftier themes - friendship, compulsion, identity and desire." (Daily Telegraph).
