Lizzie is lonely. Her parents have gone and her brother, who believes he's a woman, is missing. Most of all, though, Lizzie misses Sally, her former lover who has gone off with a man with a fat neck. She starts to stalk Sally, collecting bathroom fluff, dust and pubes from Sally's bed - all the things that prove that somewhere life is taking place without her. In Search of the Missing Eyelash is a novel about home and love and what can become undone when we try to make it all better. It's also about gender and sex and it flips from heartbreaking to hilarious within the stroke of an eyelash.

Review:

"Rich with the details of everyday life...this is a book fairly bursting with character... full of heart, imagination and fun" * Independent on Sunday * "Sensitive, ferocious and very funny" * New Statesman * "Both comic and moving as it explores ideas of self, of gender, identification and loneliness" * Observer * "Combines sitcom-style farce with movingly understated heartache" * Guardian * "A dazzling debut...the pages turn in a flurry and the jokes and fleeting arrows hit their targets" * Scotsman *
