We'll All Be Burnt in Our Beds Some Night by Joel Thomas Hynes
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Capsule Review: Someone [Cliff Jackman?] already made the comparison to Irvine Welsh and Trainspotting - so it is what you imagine: dark & dirty & rotten & full of the barest most base regret; illuminated by moments with Johnny's sister/mother Tanya, Johnny's tainted memories of his girlfriend, Madonna and my favourite: the brief section with penitent Jerome. Winner of the 2017 GG's for fiction.
