Up a Tree in the Park at Night with a Hedgehog Summary

Up a Tree in the Park at Night with a Hedgehog by Paul Robert Smith

Benton Kirby is in a spot of bother...

His life hasn't exactly gone to plan. This is hardly surprising, however, as he never really had one in the first place. Armed with a philosophy degree, a dead fiance, a brother who drives Death around London in his black cab, and a girlfriend with a history of suicidal pets, Benton - ambitionless and emotionally disengaged - embarks, for no apparent reason, on an affair with a beautiful, sexually adventurous, Korean virgin.

Following a strange snowballing of even stranger events, he finds himself, at last, exactly not where he ever imagined he would be, up a tree at night in the park with a hedgehog...

Up a Tree in the Park at Night with a Hedgehog Reviews

It's totally fucking brilliant. I love it -- Douglas Coupland
Smith's first novel is a comic masterpiece. I LAUGHED OUT LOUD, whilst cringing in guilty recognition -- Matt Dunn
I think I've got it! Up a tree (funny). In the park (romantic). At night (sad). With a hedgehog (weird and wholly original). A funny, romantic, sad, wholly original novel. Buy it, read it, you won't regret it -- Will Ferguson
Page-turningly odd -- Jasper Fforde
Smith's tone and turn of phrase is light and funny * Esquire *
