9780099268758: The Worms Can Carry Me To Heaven

Manolo Follano is handsome, fastidious, opinionated, more than a little vain and has built a comfortable provincial life for himself. Despite his inability to master the English language, his architectural design company on the mediterranean coast is thriving, his suits are handsome and his luxury appartment complete. So when his doctor and best friend tells 'Lolo' he is dangerously ill it is, it would seem, the end of everything.

In Alan Warner's fifth novel, however, this devastating news is only the beginning. In a series of vivid, erotic, hilarious flashbacks Manolo plays back his life in glowing technicolour: each wild and glorious set-piece building towards a picture of life - flawed, certainly, but passionate, richly imagined and deeply humane.

Review:

"In 2003 Alan Warner was one of Granta's 20 Best Young British Novelists, and quite right too - he's a writer of stunning originality" (Kate Saunders The Times)

" The Worms Can Carry Me to Heaven is one man's story, funny, moving, swollen with lust and high anxities, sombre in moments, momentously memorable in passages of lyrical intensity, where it sings with a potent underlying sadness" (Tom Adair Scotsman)

"Funny, profound, shocking and provocative" (Henry Sutton Esquire)

"An extraordinary novel... contains beautiful writing...[and] moments of superb deadpan comedy" (Niall Griffiths Guardian)

"Macabre and bizarre... It doesn't lack heart, but only hides it. That in itself... is rather brilliant" ( Spectator)

From the Publisher:

A savage, surreal and very original imagination - Sunday Telegraph
