“The much anticipated return of a premier agitator and raconteur. An authentic, darkly beautiful gem, both memorable and potent.” - A.D. Hitchin Joe Ambrose’s rough and ready short stories are located in, amongst other places, London, Ireland, the Mojave Desert, and the Moroccan city of Tangier. They deal quirkily with the universal themes of sex, death, and money. What they’ve said about Joe Ambrose “A Romantic to his bones, he gets down and dirty with an episodic, discursive novel that's a paean to the drug-fueled psychosexual excesses of eighties Rave culture and the hip-hop club scene. Arrogance, ennui and motiveless acts of vulgarity rule out redemption. Inexhaustibly nasty and unputdownable." The Guardian on Joe Amrbose’s Serious Time "Joe Ambrose is the cult legend's cult legend, a multi-talented hipster with more notches than belt." - dSIDE magazine "High octane shit." Peter Murphy on Joe Ambrose’s Serious Time "It's an absorbing book. I suppose the phrase 'essential study' may be a little overdone but there is no other way of describing it. Its easy style, its arguments, makes it an involving read." - Peter Somerville Large on Joe Ambrose’s Dan Breen and the IRA "Joe Ambrose, he understands - beautifully." - B. P. Fallon "Captures the tune of an Ireland gone wrong." - Colum McCann on Joe Ambrose’s Too Much Too Soon "Joe Ambrose, thanks for driving the snakes out of Ireland." - William Burroughs "Joe Ambrose, word guerrilla, pulls his pin and hurls his grenade. Scorching stuff." - Patrick McCabe, author The Butcher Boy "I like to be in touch with the street and I can always turn to Joe Ambrose when I want to know what is going on there. He is invariably hip to what’s happening, sometimes before it happens. Sometimes he is making it happen." - Howard Marks, Mr. Nice
