Publisher's Summary

In a seedy bar in Hollywood, a whiskey-loving barman is drawn into the nocturnal world of his sociopathic clientele, with their squabbles, delusions, and bizarre acts of violence. In this brilliantly funny portrait of addiction and its consequences, escape offers the only chance of survival. Utterly absorbing and surprisingly tender, Ablutions is a startlingly bold and original debut.

Where does Ablutions rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best. Rarely do you find a book which stands out so far above the rest. I wonder how someone can gain such an insight into humanity.

What other book might you compare Ablutions to, and why?

Perhaps something by Michel Houellebecq in so far as the style is so different. It is like a different language.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

No single scene, they are all fascinating.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Consider this..
