Beschreibung

An irreverent, fearless novel laying bare the heart of our contemporary world. It is about the outrageous circus surrounding David Blaine's starvation stunt at Tower Bridge. It was longlisted for the 2004 Man Booker Prize and chosen as a Book Of The Year in the "Independent".

Nicola Barker's nine novels include Darkmans (shortlisted for the 2007 Booker and Ondaatje prizes, and winner of the Hawthornden), Wide Open (winner of the 2000 IMPAC Dublin Literary Award) and Clear (longlisted for the Booker Prize in 2004). She has also written three collections of short stories, and her work has been translated into more than twenty languages. Her latest book, The Yips, has been longlisted for the 2012 Man Booker Prize. Nicola Barker lives in east London.

'Compelling. Barker's narrative draws us in with the disturbing, surreal touch of a latter-day Lewis Carroll' Sunday Times 'Barker's eccentrics are the stuff of pure farce. And they allow her to reinvent, joyously, the cogs, gears and mechanics of the genre. She knows, as Wodehouse also knew, how to rev up the language, do baroque variations on a phrase, even break into a kind of poetry' New York Times 'Dazzling... She celebrates the complexity of human experience' The Times 'Nicola Barker's linguistic exuberance got me hooked ... Like an angel dancing on the head of a pin, she takes a brief event in the crowded capital and uses it to whoop and whirl ... impressive, smart, funny, fast' Observer 'Insanely inventive. Her vision of a marginal Britain populated by drifters and desperados is fired by a comic energy that dances on the edge of self-combustion' Guardian
