‘As if Joyce had sat down and written Sin City.’

‘If Fred Astaire had been a novelist he’d have been Paul Bailey.’

‘An homage to Miss Marple – or Miss Marple as a badass, paralysed Norwegian lesbian detective.’

‘Put Charles Dickens, Chuck Palahniuk and Ignatius Reilly into a blender…’

‘A Nabokovian celebration of psychological obsession. Add a pinch of O’Connor, a dash of Hannah, heat with an imagination reared in both the canon and its rock and roll antipodes.’

‘Henry James, but without the boring bits.’

‘An active personality on the London literary scene, Stuart is well connected and highly promotable.’
