Patrick's works have been translated into 25 languages and have sold over a million copies worldwide. Born in America, he lives in London.Review:
`Menages a trois, miracles and thwarted love...This is a very humane and entertaining tale.' Observer `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 `I can't remember reading a novel in such a compulsive, leave-me-in-peace way since "Tales of the City". Ness weaves sharp dialogue and outrageous plot-weaving with hallucinatory, apocalyptic material worthy of Russell Hoban or Philip Pullman, but the unpredictable result is entirely original. More please!' Patrick Gale 'A wholly original, hugely enjoyable first novel ... Interweaving gorgeously fresh characters and a wagonload of parallel plots, this is the product of a heart-warmingly deranged new voice.' Guardian `An ebullient, hectic, surreal satire of an alien yet familiar world.' The Times
