Winter, 1981, and fifteen-year-old Alistair Black is wrestling with the fierce power of his imagination. The boundaries between what is real and what is fantasy are dissolving to increasingly dangerous effect. And then he falls in love with Alice . . .
WHAT HAPPENS NOW is a mesmerizing story about love, fear and faith. Atmospheric, suspenseful and spiked with black humour, it confirms Jeremy Dyson as one of the most exciting and original writers of his generation.
Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
A beautiful Chinese box of a novel, propped up by pleasing symmetries * GUARDIAN * Dyson's beautifully spun tale sucks you in completely: the loss of innocence is traumatic; exorcising our demons is paralysing and love hurts like hell * METRO * WHAT HAPPENS NOW is never remotely predictable. With three pages to go, you still wonder how it can end . . . [it] will stay with you long after you have turned the last page * THE TIMES * It is poignant, partly nostalgic in the right way (if you liked THE ROTTERS CLUB . . .), engrossing and by no means a local book for local people * GQ *
