An unsettling, continuously entertaining novel. " - The Sunday Telegraph - Felix Morsom has made a decent living as an author. Though his novels no longer hit the bestseller lists, he has been described as the Chekhov of Coldsands-on-Sea, and once was even shortlisted for the Booker Prize. One day, Felix receives a tape in the mail which reveals the sad tale of Gavin, a man whose life was destroyed by PROD, the Parental Rights and Obligations Department. Felix again hears Gavin, now on a radio phone-in, and a few days later meets him at a book-signing. Gavin introduces the author to Miriam, who assures Felix that he is the father of her child, Ian. Before Felix knows, he is in receipt of a huge bill for Ian's maintenance and, as if that weren't shocking enough, he soon finds himself the chief suspect in a murder case. To discover the identity of the murderer, Felix has no choice but to enter the underworld and live among the down-and-outs of London. There among the rubbish and smell of poverty he finds friendship and unexpected grace. 247 pages.
