Review:

"I knew from the first page that this was going to be a very funny book, but I didn't realise it would have so much heart and be so beautiful" -- Evie Wyld "Savage, hilarious, uncannily moving, and true. It's the first novel I've read that burns with all the madness, sadness and refracted terror of right now, and everyone should read it. Right now" -- Jacob Polley "This is a book which does more than just take you on a journey through the last twenty years. It also has a lot to say about family eccentricities, about childhood and adulthood and the difficulties faced in trying to be either, given the times we live alongside" -- Matt Haig "Raucously funny and achingly sad. Written with thrilling verve and wince-making acuity, The Adult marks Joe Stretch out as a unique and vital voice" -- Gwendoline Riley "The book is magnificent, understated, full of gentle mind grenades" -- Cliff Jones
