Om Murdstone Trilogy
Philip Murdstone has won all the prizes as a Young Adult novelist but his sales are miniscule and he loathes himself. Does he suffer a nervous breakdown or does he get drunk at his local Devon pub, accidentally fall sleep in a stone circle and summon Pocket, a fantasy character who dictates 'inkage' which proves to be a world bestseller fantasy material... BEWARE this novel contains foul language and foul thoughts. If it was a film (which it will be) it would bear an 18 certificate. Also you might die laughing. On the other hand it is intensely dramatic and exciting and contains some of the most sweetly crafted sentences you will ever read in English. The impulse to write this might have started out bitter but Peet has turned in a masterpiece.
