Publisher's Summary

Gordon Kingdom struggles with the fate of his seriously ill wife while patiently observing and methodically recording the lives of those around him: his neighbours.

He has files on them all, including Don Donald (best friend and petty thief), Annie Carnaffan (lives next door, throws footballs over the fence), and Benny (the boy who paints with his eyes closed). Then there’s Angelica, the new girl (42) on the street, with her multicoloured toenails and her filthy temper. It’s when she arrives that Gordon’s world of half truths really begins to unravel.

Critic Reviews

"A is for Angelica and MF is for meticulously funny. It will make you laugh out loud and feel guilty about it afterwards." (Simon Crump)
"A first novel that confidently moves from dark comedy that's genuinely funny to even darker despair that grows from moving to harrowing... Really impressive. (Daily Mail)
"An oddly addictive and often hilarious read... Presented in uncomplicated, unembellished prose, this is a brilliant and adeptly written debut novel, loaded with poignancy and feeling." (Time Out)
"Basically, if you don t laugh and cry over A is for Angelica in almost equal measures then bears don't deposit their personal waste in wooded areas and I'll only read this book once." (The Bookbag)
"I think this is a haunting and powerful first novel...a book I shall certainly read again." (Newbooks)
