A novel. Out now with Parthian Books.
“A clusterf*** of failed relationships, shot down dreams, hypochondriac breakdowns, parental indifference and bulls*** jobs , so concludes 29-year-old PR man, Bill McDare, about his life. To avoid going down, he needs to change. Fast. But getting to up will require a quantum shift in his industrial consumption of booze, drugs, sex, and his fondness for indulging in dazzlingly creative lies and an embedded cynicism of epic proportions. It is at this pivotal moment Bill meets the £10 psychic with a cat. The roads of excess lead to the palace of wisdom, wrote the poet William Blake and the author puts his hero on this pathway. A coming-of-age novel snorting with energy, outrage and scatological detail, it is in places eye-watering. Yet what disarms is Bill’s quasi-religious yearning for order and goodness, plus an outrageous honesty which refuses to compromise.” -Daily Mail
“A lethal cocktail of Bukowski and Mad Men, finished with a twist of dry Welsh wit.”- NME
