A darkly comic novel of disintegration, betrayal and revenge.
'Great flocks of emerald budgies are flying through my brain . . .' Ruth is in a state. The kind of state where you might put a hedgehog under the wheel before reversing, or pull on rubber underwear before running drugs to a colleague.
Things aren't going to get any better till the memory she's been avoiding floods back into her mind - and after that, they'll get a lot worse.
