9780099284871: McKenzie's Friend

Harry Fielding has had enough. He's had enough of his adopted city, and he's tired of his flat, which smells of gas and longing. Most of all though he's finished with meeting civil servants in motorway cafes at two in the morning, he's finished with MI5.

But his plans for a new life are ruined when an old friend reappears, Alfie, the crooked policeman. He's in trouble, and Harry, who wants to leave everything behind, cannot abandon a mate. Besides, Alfie's wife, Ruth, all long fingers and perfect belly, is also anxious to see Harry again.

Review:

"Davison shares Beckett’s knack for making the down-at-the-heel appear surreal" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"The world of McKenzie's Friend is an unsettling place, half nightmare, half reality, funny but also terrifying. And Harry Fielding, the narrator, is a gem. World-weary and clueless, knowing and blind, he's the perfect escort through this memorable and very accomplished book" (Roddy Doyle)

"Chilly, elegant and disconcertingly comic. Rather like a collaboration between two noteable Green(e)s - Graham and Henry- and quite safely described as original" ( Literary Review)

"A subtle undercurrent of humour... well-written... wierd" ( Time Out)

Book Description:

A thoroughly engaging depiction of a spy dragged back into a world of secrets and disguise.
