Dazzling, hilarious, disturbing and utterly unforgettable new novel from the author of the Man Booker-shortlisted A Fraction of the Whole.
Intensely moving, darkly funny and hugely entertaining, Quicksand focuses on the multifaceted dynamics between the protagonists Aldo and Liam: lifelong friends, criminal and police officer, muse and writer. As well as being a compulsively funny work, Quicksand also offers its reader a profound exploration of fate, suffering and resilience; a gruelling yet illuminating depiction of physical disability; and a subversive portrait of 21st-century society in all its hypocrisy and absurdity.

Laughed, cried, wished I could quote every line
Narration was wonderful, every line poetically crafted and super funny. Weird characters that you fall in love with completely.
Early Chuck Palahniuk and Bret Easton Ellis. Pitch black themes told with even darker humour.
No but I will, he is a fantastic narrator. Made me want an Australian accent
Aldo's talk with 'God'
I loved this from the first sentence, can't recommend it enough
If you think you're having a bad run of luck...
