Scott Spectrum is being haunted by a ghost giraffe called Jim. Scott thinks he is the man who has everything - a high speed internet connection, alien-shaped slippers, a beautiful wife called Continence. But Scott hasn't touched her in years and she's been left furiously polishing the sideboards, dreaming of black stallions. According to Jim, Scott's days are numbered, and to save himself from certain death by sexual repression he must perform every sex act in the lovemaker's lexicon.
Luckily Jim Giraffe knows a lot about sex. He also loves pizza and beer and has breath that smells of tree tops. The prudish Scott is at first shocked by this profane, perverted ghost giraffe, but he accepts his help. Little does he realise that the ghost giraffe has his own agenda and that his suburban idyll is about to be well and truly buggered up.

"It's barking mad, of course, but also weirdly mesmerising and extremely funny" (Christina Patterson The Independent)
" Jim Giraffe is a work from the uppermost echelon of the imagination, a twisting, supercharged affront to the mundane" (D. B. C. Pierre, author of Vernon God Little)
"Beautifully inflected, knowingly naive...a superbly original work... By turns it is filthy, silly, unbelievable, all-too-real, enchanting and painful" ( Scotland on Sunday)
"Daren King is a genius and Jim Giraffe is a masterpiece" (Matt Thorne)
"This is the best book about a morally reprehensible giraffe I've ever read. Hilarious, filthy and insane, Jim Giraffe is relentlessly wonderful" (Dan Rhodes)
The eagerly awaited second novel from the highly praised author of Boxy an Star
