Kelvin is a 33-year-old property developer living in a small Lancashire town. He has five close friends, all in well-paid jobs. Having bought their lovely houses cheaply in the early 1990s, they are free to spend money on their own pleasures - particularly clothes, meals and cars. Most of all, their life revolves around going to see things - art exhibitions, comedians, live music, plays...When we first meet the six friends they are on their way to see a new kind of circus. Once there Kelvin does something unforgivable to a clown, has a strange snack and meets the most beautiful girl he has ever seen. It's the beginning of the end of the good life.

Review:

The purpose of this book is to entertain and it does exactly that. By the last paragraph, I was wondering exactly how long I'd have to wait for Alexei Sayle's new novel. Gary Morecambe, Daily Mirror Compelling and believable characters...pacy and brusque Spectator Darkly humourous...[an] eccentric, bleak and wonderfully self-assured novel. Daily Telegraph Like a psychopathic ringmaster in a circus, Sayle ushers in his cast of characters...He makes them perform their surreal little dance, about vengeance, and guilt, and the casual brutality of life, and then, with a shrug, he feeds them to the lions. Independent
