Review: Henry Tumour by Anthony McGowan | Review | Guardian Unlimited Books

Mal Peet reviews Henry Tumour by Anthony McGowan:

McGowan is excellent on the anxieties of teenage life and writes scalpel-sharp dialogue, especially the ongoing internal debate between Hector and the amoral, self-serving lodger in his head. Henry's voice is perhaps the richest pleasure in the book, veering unpredictably between gross lasciviousness, erudition, modern slang and Jacobean verse... ...Henry Tumour is a dirty, delicate and uneasy novel that dramatises some big issues. Excellent.
