Look dead fish in the eye. Traipse your way through litter and text messages. Bark with joy. And don't let anything stop you enjoying refrigerator cake. " Dickson Telfer is a true original. His stories are deceptively innocent, but pull you in with an undertow that can be sinister, moving or hilarious, often all at the same time. He can create a character in a brushstroke and brilliantly, we often don't know whose side we're supposed to be on until the last line." Mark Blayney, winner of the Somerset Maughan Prize for Two Kinds of Silence. "Dickson Telfer plays centre forward in a new wave of exciting young writers. Read this book and you'll know why. " Joe England, Editor of PUSH magazine.
