Ramsey Blake's first job as a teacher takes him back to the secluded village where he grew up. There he begins to remember the strange world of childhood and comes to realise that the adult world is equally as strange. At the centre of everyday life he discovers a nightmarish game of power and manipulation and is forced to choose sides. He is about to receive the ultimate object lesson in human cruelty. From the author of Morbid Tales, Shrike, and All God's Angels, Beware!, "Remember You're a One-Ball!" is - in its recognition of the suffering of outcasts, of the ugly and the forgotten - a work of great compassion.

From the Publisher:

The inventor of a whole new genre - demented fiction - Quentin S. Crisp's work has been praised by the likes of Thomas Ligotti, Mark Samuels and Lisa Tuttle. He is considered by many the most underrated author of strange fiction now writing.

He has had a number of books published - mainly short fiction - including Morbid Tales (2004), Rule Dementia! (2005), Shrike (2009) and All God's Angels, Beware! (2009).

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

"Unpublished for far too long, "Remember You're A One Ball" is a work of profound insight into childhood and the long shadow it casts over adulthood. Its fearless, brutal honesty and the superlative quality of the prose are virtually without peer. This novel confirms me in my belief that Crisp is the most important writer of his generation." -- Mark Samuels, author of Glyphotech and Other Macabre Processes

"Quentin Crisp's work belongs to a tradition of horror literature that both defines the genre and justifies it as a worthy form of artistic expression. Literate, inventive, deeply thoughtful, and concerned with the darkest aspects of human fate, Crisp exemplifies what it means to be a horror writer."

-- Thomas Ligotti, author of The Conspiracy Against the Human Race

"Remember You're a One-Ball!" is - in its recognition of the suffering of outcasts, of the ugly and the forgotten - a work of great compassion.

-- Justin Isis, para para dancer and science fiction writer
