Review:

"A sad and hauntingly beautiful elegy for just about everything mortal" ( Time Out)

"Few writers have the invention and skill to juxtapose within one novel so many diverse themes, mundane and sublime, savage and compassionate, held in a satisfying balance. He tosses time and space about in a net seeking to catch the eternal" ( Observer)

"The dilapidated regime Love and Garbage depicts is now of course on history's rubbish dump. One of those who helped to put it there is this writer" ( Sunday Times)

From the Publisher:

‘Few writers have the invention and skill to juxtapose within one novel so many diverse themes, mundane and sublime, savage and compassionate, held in a satisfying balance. He tosses time and space about in a net seeking to catch the eternal…It is rare that one meets a new literary voice of such originality and mastery.' Observer
