9780099522997: Up a Tree at Night in the Park with a Hedgehog

For fans of Nick Hornby, Tony Parsons and Anne Tyler, this is the funniest, most inventive story they’ll get their hands on this year. Benton, ambitionless and emotionally disengaged, embarks, for no apparent reason, on an affair with a beautiful, sexually adventurous Korean virgin.

About the Author:

P Robert Smith splits his time between inner city Sydney and the beautiful beaches of the Central Coast of Australia. Up a Tree in the Park At Night with a Hedgehog is his first novel.


"It's totally fucking brilliant. I love it" -- Douglas Coupland "Smith's first novel is a comic masterpiece. I LAUGHED OUT LOUD, whilst cringing in guilty recognition" -- Matt Dunn "I think I've got it! Up a tree (funny). In the park (romantic). At night (sad). With a hedgehog (weird and wholly original). A funny, romantic, sad, wholly original novel. Buy it, read it, you won't regret it" -- Will Ferguson "Page-turningly odd" -- Jasper Fforde "Smith's tone and turn of phrase is light and funny" Esquire
