9780099537977: Scream if you want to go faster

Hull Fair, October 2007. A city still drowning in the aftermath of summer floodwater prepares to wave farewell to Europe's biggest travelling carnival. For six-year-old Billie, Walton Street is a magical playground of wide-eyed adventure. For David and Denise, the fading lights of the Fair signal the birth of a brand new kind of freedom. Rose, a sixty-year-old widow seeking a kindred spirit online, is dealt a hand she hadn't bargained for, while for Michelle and Darren it's the beginning of a haunted love affair that's struggling to escape its own past.

As the big wheel turns above them, and the sky comes alive with noise and colour, ten ordinary lives are brought together over a single weekend in the rain-soaked city below. Perfectly capturing the frenetic pace, heartbreaking poignancy and simmering aggression of modern urban life, Scream if You Want to Go Faster is a dark, funny and abrasive novel from a stunning new voice in British fiction.

Review:

" 'A rollercoaster ride of a novel'" ( Guardian)

"A powerful debut: ambitious and mesmerising. Paints a kaleidoscopic - and heartbreakingly funny - portrait of where we are today." (John Niven, author of Kill Your Friends)

" Superb... exhilarating and horribly funny" ( Word magazine)

"While comparisons with Irvine Welsh are perhaps inevitable, Russ Litten has raised the bar in the genre of writing about ordinary people with extraordinary lives...January is never a good time to talk about favourite books of the year but it's hard to think Russ Litten's invigorating debut will be beaten." (Allison Cogan Hull Daily Mail)

" A gem. Terse, truthful, and teeming with good old Yorkshire lyricism - Russ Litten effortlessly spins together the disparate lives of his characters, like the sharpest, bittersweet candy floss.'" (Richard Milward, author of Apples and Ten Storey Love Song)

Book Description:

A bittersweet white-knuckle ride of a novel following the intersecting lives of ten characters over a flood-soaked carnival weekend.
