'In The Hurricane Bill Borrows tells the story of snooker star Alex Higgins. More entertainingly, through, he tells stories about Alex Higgins... The book is unauthorised, but Burrows treats this as its own guarantee: Higgins is so self-destructive his involvement with a biography would not enlighten, but corrupt the text. What saves him in this book is his ability at the table. It is unquestionable, elevating Higgins to the status of a flawed genius, and out of the gutter where he has literally ended up.' Alan Rafferty, Great Books for Christmas, Observer

'Harrowing, incredulous and hilarious' Brian Reade, Mirror

'Reads like a script for a horror film' Leo McKinstry, Sports Books of the Year, Sunday Telegraph

'Compared to the smoke-free gentility of the literary biography, The Hurricane is a breath of bracingly fetid air.' Graham Robb, Sports Books of the Year, Telegraph
'This maximum break of a book is proof that shits might not prosper, but they can change the world.' Maxim Book of the Month,
