Guardian Review - Higson on Brooks

| No Comments

Charlie Higson reviews Kevin Brooks....

Brooks is terrifically good at mapping out the teenage world that takes place in the scrubby corners of our world, on the banks of the canal, up behind the disused factory, in someone's back garden. It's a world of casual sex, text messaging, random violence and drinking till you puke. But in Brooks's hands it's also shot through with a hallucinatory weirdness and sense of magic that when the story's over you can't be sure was entirely caused by the spiked drinks.
