The only reason you'll put this book down is to postpone the dreadful moment when you finish it' Independent 'Gripping, original and intricately conceived and written' The Times 'Compelling ... A truly memorable book, full of insights into sexuality, and the dehumanisation of a man who loses everything through no fault of his own' Marie Claire
