9780099513254: My Little Armalite

John Goode is a leftie lecturer who just wants to give his beloved wife and kids a normal life. You know: north London, good schools, nice neighbours, sash windows... yes, you know. But who can afford that kind of normal these days? Goode can only daydream of becoming a television academic, or else of a bloody great economic crash that would make his job worth something again. So when he stumbles on a long-buried assault rifle whilst planting plum-trees for his children, he soon begins to wonder if this might be just the tool to seriously renegociate his family's future...

About the Author:

James Hawes is the author of six novels, including White Powder, Green Light and Speak for England. He lives in Cardiff.

Review:

"Hawes has developed into a prolifically inventive and increasingly subtle satirist. Though the current novel features all his regular trademarks - black humour, sharp dialogue and a plot that goes off with all guns blazing in every respect - one senses that this book is also Hawes's homage to one of the great academic satires of the last century, Malcolm Bradbury's The History Man" * Guardian * "Very witty... Both laddish and slyly intelligent, Hawes has his cake and eats it" * Daily Telegraph * "Terrific black satire" -- Toby Clements * Daily Telegraph * "Hawes scatters pellets of satirical wit on the twitchy paranoia of the ageing liberal" * Arena *
