9780099515890: London and the South-East

Paul Rainey, an ad salesman, perceives dimly through a fog of psychoactive substances his dissatisfaction with his life- professional, sexual, weekends, the lot. He only wishes there was something he could do about it. And 'something' seems to fall into his lap when a meeting with an old friend and fellow salesman, Eddy Jaw, leads to the offer of a new job. But when this offer turns out to be as misleading as Paul's sales patter, his life and that of his family are transformed in ways very much more peculiar than he ever thought possible.

Review:

`London and the Southeast is a funny, painful, graphic demonstration that our job is a crucial part of our identity... It's compulsively readable'
-- Independent on Sunday

`a riveting read' -- TheLondonPaper

`a terrific debut, written in a present tense which flashes every so often into the past - a trick which Szalay pulls off with confidence... a tense and compelling read' -- The Independent

`engaging saga' -- Arena

`wonderfully dark' -- The Times

'darkly comic'
-- Time Out

Review:

`Szalay's satire is sharp, though his depictions of rush-hour raise the blood pressure to levels that are not advisable'
