By the Booker-shortlisted author of Astonishing Splashes of Colour; a wittily observed slice of modern life as it plumbs the gulf between nostalgia and reality. Who is the Roundabout Man? He doesn't look like a tramp, yet he lives on a roundabout in a caravan and survives on the leftovers from a motorway service station. He calls himself Quinn, the name of a boy in a world-famous series of children's books. When Quinn's reclusive existence is invaded, he has to face his past, and the uncomfortable truth of who he really is.

"quinn trying to separate fact from fiction."
Quinn is the main character in this story who is trying to get away from the Quinn in the children's novels his mum wrote about him and his triplet sisters. his sisters have made their own lives but Quinn can't break free.
alongside the main story there are excerpts from the triplets and Quinn books which adds so much more than a straightforward telling of the story would.
I enjoyed the book and would recommend it if you want something unusual to listen to.
