THE DEBUT NOVEL FROM KENNY BOYLE

Wendy just wants to be a poet. So how comes she’s on the run after an art heist?

‘May well be the best book I’ve read in years’ – Peter May

An aspiring writer from the Southside of Glasgow, Wendy is in a rut. She tries to brighten her call-centre job by shoehorning as many long words as possible into conversations with customers. But her manager isn’t amused by that and, after a public dressing-down, Wendy walks out.

Available now from Eye-books.com and all good book shops

‘A charming, funny and unique story that tackles tough issues with a gentleness and poignancy that really resonated with me’ – Clare Grogan
