Joe, Dilys and their son Sean are all outsiders in the small English town where they live. Joe because of insidious racism, Dilys because she suffers the remaining stigma of her alcoholic mother and mentally ill father, and Sean because he seems slow. As Dilys and Sean become increasingly and unhealthily co-dependent, Joe is pushed to periphery of their lives. So much so that when he vanishes, Dilys is neither surprised nor concerned. Then Joe's identical twin brother Neville arrives from Jamaica. Despite what Dilys tells him, he refuses to believe that Joe simply walked out on his family. And so he begins a painstaking investigation into Joe's disappearance. What he discovers changes him forever.

Review:

Praise for TOY SOLDIERS: 'Beautifully written, painfully honest and deeply affecting. Stephen Thompson's debut novel is terrific' (Hanif Kureishi)

A sensitive, subtle and fascinating account of a young black man's fight against crack addiction...Thompson's writing is compelling (The Times)

A compelling, urban tale. Gritty, yet filled with inspired prose (Courttia Newland)

Accessibly psychological, gripping and just the right side of confrontational (i-D)

Beautifully honest and unapologetically bleak (Independent on Sunday)

Book Description:

A moving and engrossing story of adversity and love from the acclaimed author of TOY SOLDIERS
