by Helen Walsh

This reads as fast as she lives. Millie seeks oblivion through bingeing on drink, drugs and sex: lesbian sex, predatory sex, degrading sex - but always explicit sex. A graphic romp through the bowels of youth culture with a lurking unrequited romance. Laced with street philosophy and fresh metaphor; a brilliant if at times disturbing, though never gratuitous, read. Will do for Liverpool what Trainspotting did for Edinburgh.


... when I see a mother and toddler in the street the first thought that flips through my head is how much easier my fist will slide in now that she's been stretched by childbirth.
