The world of 'The Ice Monkey' is a dangerous place, which steals over you like a dream. It is a twilight world of stark cities, doomed humanity, bizarre rites and psychic horrors. Powerful and unsettling, this stunning collection of stories displays the astonishing range of a British writer whose wit and imagination has established him as one of the most original and distinctive voices in contemporary fiction.
“This collection puts Harrison in the company of Ian McEwan and Peter Carey, but he is grittier than Carey and wittier than McEwan.”
TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT
“A curious and accomplished writer … the stories in 'The Ice Monkey' display his talents quite remarkably. A brief review can only serve to indicate the richness of this book. Mr Harrison’s progress becomes fascinating.”
ROBERT NYE, 'Guardian'
“Writing of remarkable resonance and power.”
