Published for the first time in flipback - the new, portable, stylish format that's taken Europe by storm. Shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers' Prize and Costa Novel of the Year, this international bestseller has become a reading group classic. We don't want to tell you too much about this book.
It is a truly special story and we don't want to spoil it.
Nevertheless, you need to know something, so we will just say this: It is extremely funny, but the African beach scene is horrific.
The story starts there, but the book doesn't. And it's what happens afterwards that is most important.
Once you have read it, you'll want to tell everyone about it.
When you do, please don't tell them what happens either.
The magic is in how it unfolds.
