A review from E.O.Higgins

A wonderfully-written novella charting the course of a single chaotic day in the life of the protagonist – Billy Stringer – in a strange, noirish world where fiction novels have been outlawed.

The intricate story unfolds quickly; and, as Stringer swiftly succumbs to the sauce, a sudden – and fairly unexpected – love story rapidly bubbles to the surface.

Literature is a beautifully-rendered story, mixing the cynicism and moral ambiguity of classic noir fiction with startling flashes of humour and some disarmingly tender moments.

A thoroughly recommended debut.

Deep thanks, E.O.
