Stephen Walker hits hard with his surreal hammer. Eye-wateringly funny novel.
Wyndam-on-sea. Rainy season. Next Sunday.
Sally manages her uncle’s caravan park. He’s ordered her to keep the park dull; the town council – feeling that the resort’s image is being damaged by the liveliness of its caravan parks – has promised a million pounds to the least exciting park in Wyndam-on-sea. If that million pounds isn’t won, the park will close.
18 year-old Teena Rama is 148.7% too beautiful – and gaining a percentage point every two days. Soon no one will be able to meet her without falling in love.
Mr Landen has no brain. But he does have a tub of margerine between his ears.
These three facts are somehow related.

Danny Yates Must Die:
‘The strangest thing in this blackly humorous cartoon-like thriller with a bizarre, nonsensical plot is that it all actually works. Helplessly gripping.’
Sally Cooper manages her uncle's caravan park. She's normally quite good at it, but this season there's a problem. The town council – feeling that the resorts image is being damaged by the strangeness of the occupants of its caravan parks – has promised a million pounds to Wyndham-on-sea's dullest park. If that million pounds isn't won, Sally's park will close. And her uncle won't be very pleased. So Sally is charged with dulling down the site from top to bottom.
18 year old Teena Rama is 148.7% too beautiful – and gaining a percentage point every two days. Soon noone will be able to meet her without falling in love.
Mr Landen has no brain but he does have a tub of margarine between his ears.
There is a link between these seemingly unrelated facts.
Praise for Stephen Walker:
