About the Author:

patrick ness was brought up in Seattle, on the west coast of America, but now lives in London. The Crash of Hennington is his first novel.

Review:

'Patrick Ness recreates the world as we know it, infusing it with a charm and whimsy that brings to mind Calvino and, of course, the Ionesco of "Rhinoceros". This is a true changeling of a book, both funny and subversive.' T.C. Boyle

Book Description Flamingo, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Welcome to the seaside metropolis of Hennington, where a mysterious herd of rhinoceros have wandered city streets for so long they've become a civic feature, where the current Mayor first met her husband on a nude beach, and where Jon Noth has returned after four decades to reclaim a lost love. Unfortunately for him, that lost love is Cora Larsson, long-time Mayor of Hennington, happily (and flexibly) married - and still not interested. Bookseller Inventory # 000842
