About the Author:

DBC Pierre has worked as a designer and cartoonist, and currently lives in Ireland. His first novel, Vernon God Little, won the 2003 Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Award, the 2003 Whitbread Prize for Best First Novel, and the 2003 Man Booker Prize, and is sold in 43 countries. His relationship with Hammer stretches back to earliest childhood. He describes never having been so chilled and intrigued as with the supernatural Hammer films he grew up with. Their effect was so great that he spent many schooldays drawing replica storyboards on cash register rolls, and holding showings for classmates on a shoebox cinema.

Review:

"A thoroughly modern nightmare ... DBC Pierre stacks up the layers of horror with relish and skill - the Hammer label gives him a perfect excuse to leave no stop unpulled" The Times "Pierre lets his baroque storytelling powers run riot in this latest addition to the excellent Hammer series ... exerts an uncanny, bone-chilling thrill" Metro "Pierre's prose is a sumptuous, metaphor-infused confection ... Quirky characters and off-the-wall observations about modern life's obsession with electronic communication keep the book constantly entertaining." SFX "Winningly peculiar" Independent "Beautifully written, creepy and funny ... A fascinating, occasionally chilling tale" The List
