 Synopsis  Reviews  Information
Tom Violet has failed, once again, to have sex with his wife. Too young to have these kinds of problems, but too old to be young, he is only further crushed moments later when Tom finds out that his philandering, borderline-estranged father Curtis has a) broken into their home in the middle of the night, waking (and terrifying) Tom’s 5 year old daughter b) just been kicked out of his own house by wife No.3, and c) just won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Tom, who works a soul-crushing 9 to 5 job has been secretly writing a novel of his own for years. With his subtle, satiric humour, debut author Matthew Norman will have readers laughing and grimacing with every page.
