Publisher Comments:

David Mitchell, author of the Booker shortlised "Cloud Atlas" returns with a vintage novel destined to be his most captivating achievement to date. England, 1982 and on the cusp of adolescence, Jason Taylor lives in the most tedious place on earth and has a stammer. Each of the chapters is a self-contained short story, following 13 months in his life as he negotiates the pitfalls of school and home and contends with bullies, girls and family politics.

Since I once nearly strangled a 19-year-old who spent a 3 hour drive extolling the wonderfulness of Catcher in the Rye, you may understand how I nearly didn't read this after seeing it blurbed as "a coming of age story." How fortunate I did read it. It's a masterful and engaging story of changing perspectives on who's big, who's important, what hurts, and who's who and there for a narrator who's bewildered, insightful, and growing up despite himself and without being a self-centered egotist.
